Another great pattern I have found for the new baby is the adorable Little Geranium Dress offered on Made By Rae.
First I made it in this rainbow wheat print fabric that I've had in my stash for a long time. I love that it's beautiful but not girly.
To keep with the wheat's earthy feel, I picked out wooden buttons.
It was crazy quick and easy to sew up. I really liked the shape of it and immediately cut out a second.
The second dress I decided to use a striped dark blue& yellow fabric. I really adore it and used it on a few items for lily last summer.
To have a bit of fun I cut the bodice and skirt opposite, using the stripes to create visual interest.
I don't know why I didn't take a photo of the back but I used dark blue buttons.
I'm really excited that I got not one, but two dresses done today. Friday is our busiest day of the week because we attend a homeschooling coop in the morning. It's always a mad dash in the morning, followed by a crash in the afternoon. So, to get home feeling good enough to sew is unheard of. The kids really did an amazing job and so tonight we'll have a campfire and toast marshmallows for s'mores.
I'll be back tomorrow, though I have no clue what I'll be showing.
