The baby tights tutorial is finished, but just decided yesterday that I’m going to include a tights pattern with it which isn’t quite finished.  So that will be up tomorrow or Thursday, for all of you who responded so exuberantly!  I’m so excited that you’re excited!  It’s such a fast and easy project, I know you’ll love it.

During naps today I completely ignored my growing pile of emails and frantically whipped up this baby dress.  In my defense: a) it was in my head and needed to get out, b) the grey tights needed something to go with them.

The pattern came from a vintage baby pattern that I heavily modified (as in: only used the neckline and underarm lines, redrafted everything else), and the fabric is from Joann.

Now I’m going to subject you to more baby pictures (universal groan, I know).

{please don’t use pictures of Clementine without permission.  thanks!}

My only bit of sadness is that her little red Minnetonka moccasins don’t fit yet to complete the outfit.  Size 2, why do you taunt me!?!

Next post will be the baby tights tutorial/pattern, I promise.

    oh my! She is just the cutest thing and that dress is adorable!

  34. Monique says:

    Very, Very cute. I can't wait for the tights tutorial. I was searching for some free shirt patterns (for your top event) and randomly came across your top tutorial. Must be meant to be — I'll definatly have to make one!

  35. Paula Kathlyn says:

    I'm with you on the it's-in-my-head-and-i-just-have-to-get-it-out. That reality has me so foggy sometimes I wonder how I can drive. CUTE dress. Love the ruffly neckline. –ginger.

  41. barbara says:

    she's a lucky girl to have such an incredibly creative mum. the things you make are so inspiring.

    haha, the word verification is 'choggli' (which almost sounds like 'a little piece of chocolate' in swiss), while i am sitting here with a cup of tea and some chocolate!

    I agree – that dress is soooo adorable (and that baby in it). I would love to make one for my little people as well (who already have 'legs' but we can make it longer).

    Anyway – I will get those read shoes which all my blogger friends are taunting me.

  67. Melanie says:

  74. viento says:

    So I'm way late to this party but I've just got to chime in. I LOVE the dress and the tights! BTW, no universal groan over here, I loved each and every lovely photo of your little girl. She is adorable and each photo was great!

  75. Vicky says:

    I love this dress!! Is there a pattern available? Vicky

  76. Laura @ ON{thelaundry}LINE says:

    eep, LinkWithin brought me to the chambray Pierrot Dress and then to this one, and I'm pretty sure I actively NEED to see the pattern pieces to this one or something. This would look just adorbs on my little chunky monkey. I have to make her her own clothes because bless her heart, she is just so ridiculously sized, all chubby chub chub with a long chubby torso and short extra-chubby legs. Commercial clothes don't always look so fab on her, ha.

    PS. Please don't YELL here. Thanks! Hee.
