But it's cotton, vintage looking with fawn dots and peachy feathers on it, very cute!
I had seen Kristy at Lower Your Pressure Foot, make this one up before, it's a Butterick 400 vintage pattern for babies and her advice about sizing (You can see her cute baby modelling the tunic at around 6 months - I think?) really helped, because whilst the pattern is small and you think it's a baby size, it's not really a newborn size. BUT, when I opened up my pattern, the owner before (all my patterns are second hand) had marked and resized the dress front and back pieces, so I assumed this was ok for a smaller baby. Still looks kinda big:
But even the buttons are thrifted, so once again, it's entirely secondhand and totes upcycled. I like the exposed pleats/darts around the neck.
For a while there all my friends were having boy babies, and whilst they are just darling, I've been trying not to make baby clothes for them, as shirts and shorts are harder for me to think about. Dresses and tunics are easy peasy, so finally with the girl baby news (2 in the past 6 months and another few to be born soon) I'm very happy to use the smaller scraps or fabric pieces up for frocks!
Anyways, I'm going to see Gossip play now (we have a major music venue right near our house, so just gonna stroll over! Luxury!) and have some fun. It's been a busy week and it's only TUESDAY. I feel like complaining a LOT, but things will get better as the week rolls on. We're going down (or up - can't remember!) the coast with friends this weekend, so can't wait for that!
