Refashioned baby dress

I would have loved to sew my girl her first Christmas dress, but I just don’t have the time…

I then found this summer dress at a resale shop on clearance for $1.75 (!) and liked the idea of pimping instead of starting from scratch. Ripped off the ‘worn’ ladybug (I never knew these were also called lady birds!) and the sunflowers…

Looked in my huge ribbon&trim stash, but of course I had nothing that would work…JoAnns was there to help. After finding a pretty combination of 2 trims (for $3.18), I asked the cutting lady how would I sew it onto the dress? “Probably by hand” she said. “That makes sense” I agreed.

Then I went home and turned on my sewing machine and stitched it on! Well…in an ideal world that would have happened the same day but in a baby-world I needed to change a diaper and nurse and change the diaper again :). I have no time for hand sewing. It might be good that I have hardly any time, because it makes for much faster decisions and sewing…and blogging!

Tadaa!

The black sequin trim looks kind of harsh in the picture, but not in real life!

Tiny white tights – check!
Black or white cardigan or long sleeve – keeping my eyes open for one.
Cutesie shoes – not sure yet, may have to make them, because no way that I’ll find those for a she’ll-only-wear-those-once price!
