Teeny Tiny Baby Dress for Baby Shower Gift

by | Dec 20, 2017 | Clothing, Girls | 0 comments

One of my new friends since moving just had her first baby girl.  And you know what that means…adorable outfits and blankets!  Luckily, I recently bought the Hazelbee Baby dress and made a teeny tiny baby dress.  But then I had to find a legging pattern for babies. When I had babies I always traced around store bought leggings. And the other legging pattern I’ve used isn’t in baby sizes.  I settled on the free leggings pattern from Halla.

Since these are a gift and I can’t really try the outfit on for fit, I’m not going to do a review.  My only comments about the patterns are they came together as expected!  I made up the 0-3 month sizes for both patterns.  I have no idea if they run true to size or fit funny or any of that stuff, but I sure hope they fit awesome because I die over how cute this outfit is every time I scroll past the pictures…If only I was sewing from real patterns with awesome fabrics when I had my own babies…

About a week before the baby shower, my first order from Raspberry Creek Fabrics arrived.  My friend mentioned she isn’t drawn to pink, so I knew this mustard window pane and mustard polka dot cotton lycra were perfect.  Both fabrics are from the Raspberry Creek Fabrics Club line.

Clearly I love the window pane print, since I made a peplum for myself with it.  But honestly, It’s even cuter in this mini form.  And I cannot get enough of the crossover front with this window pane fabric!  It’s making my heart sing in all sorts of octaves.  I just love this teeny tiny baby dress!

Of course the dress needed matching accessories, so I made some coordinating headbands.  Again-no baby to try them on so I just hope they fit.  I made them slightly different sizes so hopefully one will fit while the dress fits.

And the leggings.  Honestly I thought mustard leggings were cute but I’m also tickled at how practical they are.  Cause even if that diaper leaks, these leggings will hide those stains perfectly.  I added my little label on the back of the leggings for fun.

This teeny tiny baby dress was so fun to make, I can’t wait to make a bunch more.  Baby clothes take so little fabric but have twice as much impact!
