Easy Baby Dress
So I'd been wanting to make a fun (easy) spring dress for my daughter. I found this fabric that I absolutely ADORED and thought it would be perfect for my first attempt at making clothes. I'd seen several patterns for making a "pillowcase" dress, but I was looking for something a little more tailored. I found this great pattern by Made By Petchy. I am not a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination, but it was so easy to follow and I think it turned out great! She uses binding tape, but I didn't have any so I just used my fabric to make a long tie and hemmed the arm holes and bottom. For that reason, my dress turned out a little short since I sewed a double hem, but it looks super cute with tights! Next time I'll either use binding tape or just make the length a little longer to accommodate the hem. I'm looking forward to making many more of these as the weather starts warming up!
