Strawberry Baby Dress
I've been hoarding this Heather Ross Briar Rose knit for a while, with baby things in mind (like this!). So I finally busted it out and made a comfy dress and matching headband for little Lottie.
Did I mention she is getting "sooooo big!"? ;)
I drafted the pattern myself, starting with the 6 - 12 month size of the Sew Liberated envelope tee pattern from Growing Up Sew Liberated.
I adjusted the underarm a bit, and sketched some cap sleeves. I used my serger mostly, but finished the neck binding and hemmed the sleeves and the skirt with my regular machine. I used my double needle with stretch thread in the bobbin only (can't get it to work if I used it for both needle and bobbin). I also used my walking foot.
The matching headband I made with Megan Nielsen's free baby bow headband pattern, available here. Took about 3 minutes! Used only my serger for that.
And my little strawberry-lover has worn it a bunch already!
