I've been wanting to try something new, so when an online friend of mine, Katie, became a new grandma...well, time for a baby dress, right? Oh, this was so much fun to make--everything is so small, it was done in no time! I was originally going to use skull or tattoo fabric or something like that, because Katie's daughter likes things that are different, but then I remembered this fabric. I thought it would be perfect for a grandma who celebrates Yule! While I was digging around trying to find it, I was hoping hoping hoping there would be enough for the dress, because it was just a remnant I dug out from underneath a table at the fabric store.
Yep! There was plenty. Even enough to center the moon on the back facing!
Just a note about the buttons...I was fretting about them a little. I knew they'd need to be sewn on well, so I specifically chose four-hole buttons, and then I sewed them on in two steps--one set of holes, then the other. So, even if one thread breaks, there will be another to hold the button securely until it can be fixed.
Now I just hope it fits! I did make it a little larger so she can throw a turtleneck or tee underneath. --crossing fingers--
