Babies are fun!

Aren't they?! When my son was a wee one, I made very few things for him.. A baby-blanket I started when I was 5 months pregnant was completed when Alvin was 6 months old. ;-) I made a hat for him which he used very rarely. and, after that I never made anything for him. Now that my cousin had a baby girl recently, I decided to sew something for the little one. So, I started with the classic reversible A-line dress. I drafted the pattern myself eyeballing the size for a 3-month old baby. It took me  about an hour to make this dress from drafting to finishing. I referred to this tutorial to sew the dress.

I used press buttons for the snaps. The fabric you see above is a simple cotton print and I used printed flannel for the other side. I am meeting the wee one during Christmas. so, I made the dress in a 3-month baby's size and I am hoping that she has lots of room to grow in this dress. Here is the other side of the dress.

Since I had lots of these fabrics left over, I made matching bib too. So, reversible bibs to go with the reversible dress. :D

and, the other side..

The next plan is to make matching booties. Auntie Josie is having so much fun making cute baby stuff that this girl is going to be one well-dressed babe in the block! ;-) So, what are you having fun creating at the moment?
