I also made an ickle dress. It’s the Itty bitty baby dress from Made by Rae. Isn’t it the cutest thing? I had planned to buy something from the Village Haberdashery’s scrumptious fabric collection but I was on a deadline so sourced everything from my stash. The bodice is made from a scrap of Liberty tana lawn and the skirt is quilting cotton that I had intended for a craft project. The two prints match perfectly and it’s great to shop from your stash for projects. Er, bit of a revelation in fact!
I heard the dress was tiny so played around enlarging the bodice on a photocopier. To accommodate the slightly enlarged bodice, I extended the width of the skirt by 1 inch and added homemade piping to the front. This was also a serendipitous stash match.
This is my first ever baby dress and I had lots of fun making this. It comes together so quickly and gets cuter with every stitch. I almost died when I finished the front. My friend is due in June and this little dress is perfect for summer.
