I got inspired to try my hand at sewing some baby clothes this week. I found a free pattern online over at burdastyle.com and pulled out some remnant fabric I had bought on a whim for $3. One day later, voila:
I had to add the ruffle because the dress was way too short. I didn't extend the lining, so it's about five inches shorter than the rest of the dress. And though I zigzagged my seams, I'm not confident we won't fray in the wash. (Finally, it was 28 degrees today and I didn't feel like stripping Natasha down to model the dress in its summer glory, thus the tights and shirt underneath).
