|I would make one for myself if there was any more of this fabric!|
I picked up this fabric remnant (3/8 of a yard) for next to nothing, and hoped there would be enough there to make something for Iris. It's cool, because it's really soft t-shirt material, except that it's double-layered, so it's a little thicker, plus it's got stripes on one side and polka dots on the other.
|$1.20 for the fabric--pretty good price for a dress, I'd say!|
Also, I made the pockets a bit smaller and left the buttons off. What do babies need pockets for, anyway? Oh yeah, this:
|I made this little guy out of extra fabric to fit inside the pocket. It was|
supposed to be a cat. Hmmmm...
Since the fabric and style seemed like it would be good for fall, I used a dress that fits Little Sister now as a template but went a little bigger all around. Turned out just right--she can wear it now on chillier days, but there's enough room to take her into the fall. Oh, and I made the whole thing during the commercials in the season finales of The Office and Parks and Recreation (too noisy to use the machine during the actual show), and maybe a half-hour afterwards. What I'm trying to say is, it was quick. And I like TV.
Anyway, I just love it! I followed Little Sister around admiring her outfit all day.
