Not bad for a first try

I got inspired to try my hand at sewing some baby clothes this week.  I found a free pattern online over at 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).

Thanks for stopping by!
