Housing for the Newly Birthed

I like to make these for newborn friends. They're House Frocks, and each one is different. I use New Look 6310, which I alter by lining the bodice and adding velcro closures instead of ties. Then I decorate the frocks with a door, windows (one on back, too), and various sundries from my accoutrement closet. I like to think when Baby wears it, she/he looks like a miniature house on a sunny day. The only thing missing is bottoms, perhaps as the front yards.
