So, my idea with this gorgeous Scamper and Friends fabric was to make matching dresses for the girls, but that idea unfortunately didn't work the way I had hoped.
One of the perils of not following a pattern and "winging-it" is that sometimes (very often, in my case) it may not fit the intended recipient.
I wasn't paying attention when I cut out the fabric for this peasant dress and I made it far too small for Ella. She's only 4 months old but she is long and has a big head, something that she inherited from Handyman (snigger snigger), and is currently in a 6-9 month clothing range. This dress is in the 0-3 month range.
I couldn't decide what sort of embellishment to add to the front (I probably could have left it bare, but it just seemed to need something), so I made a long "ribbon" from the gray fabric and sewed it onto the center so that it could be tied in a bow.
The fabric is some extra sheeting fabric from my stash. I'm trying to use up the fabric that's been languishing in there for
decades awhile. If I had purchased fabric to accent the Scamper print I would have gotten something in the orange category, but oh well, I was working with what I had on hand.
I think perhaps I'll try to sell the dress. It seems like the perfect fall outfit, don't you think? Know anyone who might be interested? It would make a lovely baby gift!
