Love the Pattern
The past few days I've been dying to do some sewing. And I finally pulled out a pattern for an infant dress I've been meaning to sew all summer.
Last Christmas, when we were allowed to take some things from my grandmother's house, I found this pattern in her basement. This was actually a pattern that was purchased the year I was born ... and one that she used for me!
It was such a pleasant experience to think of her while I made this simple shirt for Petra.
The pattern was super simple. I changed just a couple things. It called for eyelet or ric-rac across the bottom and I had neither - so instead I put a pretty ribbon across the bottom. Also, the directions didn't call for topstitching which I thought was strange. And finally, I had to add pearl snaps since I don't have buttons in the house.
I'm overall super happy with how it turned out. It fits her perfectly. And I love that its black. Its so hard to find children's clothing in black.
