molly kate's new dress
this dress was made from some scraps from a sling i made for a friend.
i used pink batiste for the lining. the pink batiste was formerly a nightgown of mine, that didn't quite work for me. i had made it for her birth (almost 2 years ago now, sniff), but didn't like how it fit me.
i designed the dress using wild ginger's child play pattern making software. www.wildginger.com
i used the baby & me option for the first time (tipping hat to rowena). i used their standard size 2t, because it's so hard to measure wiggley toddlers. i added the peter pan collar as an afterthought. all in all, it was a lot of fun to make this dress. i especcially enjoyed doing the tucks. and. . . isn't she just the sweetest li'l thing?
it was very hard to get these shots, as the subject is *most* uncooperative. i actually took these in our church's baby room.
