5 Take Two

Friday, April 22, 2011

One of my lovely friends Haley asked me if I could make a dress for her new bambino... answer: DUH!

So my onesies only come in 3-6 6-9 and 12-18 and she wants something for her to wear now which means that I had to venture into making something from scratch. Iv been wanting to do this for a while but now I had the motivation. I have made several adult clothing articles from scratch for class but never baby stuff so I was kinda just diving in.

The idea was to make an apron dress that was open in the back and a matching pair of bloomers to cover her booty.

my rough sketch emphasis on the rough

So I whipped something together today and it didn't turn out too well. Well I mean its cute and Im happy with it only instead of being a dress for a newborn it came out as more of a shirt for P. Oops! 

I like it and Im going to put it up on my Etsy store but I am also going to either go back and shorten the straps and take out the side stitches to make more of an A-line or just start over. 

Just anther trial and error in the crafting world
