You might be thinking, shouldn’t she be sewing her own tops? You know, for that Spring Thing happening soon? I don’t know what happened. Somehow another one appeared. The red-striped tights needed something to go with them? It’s just so hard to selfish-sew when you have a cute little goober to churn stuff out for. And itty-bitty stuff, so it only takes ONE nap, instead of FOUR.
You might also be thinking, shouldn’t she at least strap said goober into her high chair? And you know, that’s just what responsible parents would do. We, obviously, are not those people.
Dress Details: The fabric is plain blue chambray from who-knows-where, the sort you can get anywhere. The ruffle was serged to make it look fuzzy. The pattern is mine, began as a tracing of a vintage baby bunting and ended up totally different, as a dress. Also inspired by this pattern (I actually purchased the top in a 2T from Varenia last summer, knowing I was having a girl but before she released the pattern, which is for size 1T-6). I’d love to make this baby version available, but who knows when I’ll find the time. This version was not cut on the bias, and I’ve definitely decided I like the bias-cut version better, even if it does use more fabric.
Sidenote/Rant Warning: I am totally hating on Blogger right now for deleting ALL MY COMMENTS FROM FOREVER when I switched over to made-by-rae.com (click on any old post to see what I’m talking about). Also, search (in the top left corner) no longer works (I can’t even search for “Ottobre”, which is one of MY LABELS). And yes, I tried exporting/importing the blog and yes if I switch back to the old domain (madebyrae.blogspot.com) they all show up again. I have a computer geek for a husband, for crying out loud.
Blogger, I am breaking up with you. It’s not me, it’s you.
I’m thinking Moveable Type or Typepad or Squarespace? I know some of you know way more than I do about this. Email me or comment. Please.
