Itty Bitty Dress

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!
