Last year, my friend Mirelle was expecting her first child! So as a baby shower gift, I wanted to sew her up something that her daughter could wear. Since I've never made clothes for an infant, I looked online for a pattern. Made by Rae has this really cute Itty Bitty Baby Dress pattern, which you can download for free. The pattern is very simple and easy to sew up. I added some couture touches by doing a blindstitch by hand on the hem and a blind catchstitch to attach the lining to the skirt. Pick a cute cotton print and you're all set!
On my cute recipient. Can you believe she is even more adorable in person?
This pattern is great for all levels of sewers!
