Nap Time Triumph...

So I basically feel totally awesome right now. I made this little beauty during nap time yesterday. What do you think?

This dress represents a significant triumph! Not only is this my first EVER baby dress, it is also the first item of clothing I have sewn without one scrap of help! I am so proud :).

You may also notice that this dress consists entirely of Moda fabrics (From JEllen's of course) The green is a basic solid and the skirt is Wee Woodland by Keiki for Moda. So this is also my very first finished project made from my lovely fabric stash! I have been otherwise too scared to cut my fabric. I'm such a chicken when it comes down to the cutting. Eek!
I found this pattern on Prudent Baby. I love reading their blog, and check it often. It was such a happy surprise to find this pattern waiting for me as a went through my morning blog list. I was instantly inspired I knew I had to make it.


And it looks simply darling to boot! (It helps to have such a pretty model!)

So pretty! Your model is like porcelain, and the dress is darling. I saw this pattern yesterday, too, but am making myself wait until I find out if I'm having a girl before I make any decidedly girly things! (I do not want to be disappointed!) Besides, I totally suffer from that afraid-to-cut-my-fabric disease. Can you send the cure my way? ;)

You should be proud of yourself! Elaine looks darling. You go girl.

The wonderful this about little people clothes is that it requires a very small amount of fabric. This helped move beyond fear....big person clothes, I don't think I'm ready for :)
