    I think that it is darling. And not meaning to add more to your to-do list, I would love to see the tutorial on it!!
    The fabric and ric-rac are perfect!!

    Very cute, and love that it’s versatile to keep past the dress and into the tunic stage (mind you, I’ve seen some very dodgy photos of me in extremely short dresses when I was wee, just with a pair of thick tights on!)

    I do know what you mean about needing a list though, I’m really descending into Christmas panic mode right now, partly because I haven’t got a clear list drawn up!

    YES YES YES!!! My toddler would LOVe that dress :-) So comfy and I totally agree, paired with leggings when it gets too short is the best idea ever!

    Cute! I just use Indietutes peasant top and alter it to a dress, but some people panic at the thought of veering off course so in sure a pattern would be adored! I’m planning on sharing my “blueprint” for the tiered dress I made yesterday for Nicole from that shirt tutorial, it turned out soooo sweet, I’m quite pleased. Isn’t baby girl sewing just exciting? I might get another round of it soon, we’ll find out in a few months what gender I’ll be sewing for ;)

    Yes please! Please share!!! I am pinning this because it is the most darling little dress and I now have visions of my little girl (5 months) wearing it with a little ruffled shorts when she’s a little older :)

    I’m with everyone else – yes please. It’s so cute and like you said, so versatile.
    As for the hard time getting going on stuff for your little one, I think projects for other people are way easier to actually finish – maybe because there’s usually some sort of deadline.

    You’re like me with a list. Things I have to do don’t appeal, but the things I would like to do get checked off pretty quickly. It’s a lovely dress.

    I would *love* if you would share the 0-3 month pattern with us! I have my second little boy due in February and I think this would actually make a great base pattern for his Christening gown. I’ve been like you – a million projects I want to do before he gets here, but hardly an inch of stitching. :) A handmade Christening gown is one of those on the top of my list though that I’d love to get done before he’s here!

    Your baby’s dress is adorable and sweet. I can tell that your baby girl will be dressed ultra modern. So, no heirloom sewing for you? I loved making heirloom dresses in soft pastel batiste with English cotton lace for my granddaughter. I’ll bet you would love it if you tried it. The fabric is so very soft on baby’s skin.

    I would LOVE this pattern for both of my girls- I have a 4-year-old and 6-month-old; on my “would be nice to make” list is matching dresses. Can you tell me where you got the fabric? I love it! Well done!

    Thank you for all the feedback! A pattern is in the works!

    The fabric used in the dress is from the line Rainy Days and Mondays by Melimba & Beccabury for Riley Blake Designs. I didn’t love it as much till I saw it all made up in this dress, but now I do!

    LOVE IT!!! This would be a perfect gift for my baby sister. She is having her first baby in May. Little Katherine Lynn would look perfect in the dress. I would love to have the pattern.

    Cutting is the most vital aspect of learning how to sew. If your fabric is ready for cutting, lay it out on a flat table. You may purchase a special cutting board tool. This tool can help you a lot since they are marked for straight lines and right angles. Pin the fabric in place and start cutting.

    I just purchased your Peasant Dress pattern for little girls and it’s fabulous! It’s very easy to follow and it looks like it will be quick to sew up (which I need-I’m making it for an upcoming birthday present). I can’t thank you enough for sharing this pattern and your talent! I appreciate it and I am sure many other sewer’s are also!
