I just finished my first Little Geranium Dress (pattern from Rae over at Made by Rae: find it here). This is the free itty bitty (size 0-3 months) pattern to try out if you’re interested in her Geranium Dress (think more instructions and more options: sleeves, necklines, pockets, etc). I’m not sure I’ll buy the full Geranium Dress pattern only because it doesn’t come in my daughter’s size and I already have a very similar pattern in multiple baby sizes.
And I managed to use some of that gingham check I just picked up — albeit, only an itty bitty portion of the 12+ meters I’ve got! It’s so pretty and girly in pink gingham! And perfect for a late spring or summertime baby. (Note to all the ladies I know having babies in the next few months — at least one of you better have a girl! Cause this is just too cute!)
I like this pattern and it was quick and easy to do. The whole project only took about 2-3 hours (with interruptions) and the condensed instructions aren’t a problem at all. The only problem I had was getting my printer to print the pattern pieces to the correct scale. In the end, I had to scale to 110% to get it right. So make sure you check that scale before you cut anything!
The only changes I made were to use no-sew snaps in place of buttons and I cut the pockets on the bias so that the pattern would stand out. I think maybe a pair of matching bloomers would be the perfect way to complete this outfit! What do you think?
