Last Easter I tried to take a stab at not only making a dress for baby M but making up the pattern as well. I quickly found out that it’s a whole lot harder (for me at least) than I thought it would be. The dress was waaaay to large and had all kinds of puckers and problems. I still liked the color combo however so decided to keep it for when she was older. Cut to the present, a year later, and I just tried it on her this weekend. It’s still not perfect but I had a lot of fun seeing her romp around in it. It’s inspired me to sew more dresses for her and really hone my skills a bit more (I can use a pattern no problem, but making up my own is new territory for me).
I think it would be so fun to try and sew one simple dress (or clothing item) for her a week. Not sure if I’ll be able to keep up with it each and every week but I like the goal. My friend Meta, of One More Mushroom, is also thinking about doing it with me and I’m excited to share with all of you the results.
If you have any good patterns that you recommend I’d love to hear about them! I’m sure many of you are much more versed in this world than I am.
