The alternate title of this post is "Oh my god, I have a newborn and actually finished sewing something!". I'm still crafting, albeit slowly. And I'm still trying to figure out how this 8 pound person takes up my whole day (and night).
I made this dress for when Penny is age 2. I'm working well ahead of the curve.
The pattern is one of a wind fall I found at the Goodwill months ago. Two big bag of vintage girl patterns, many of them the same but for different ages, often missing pattern pieces that I have to draft. It's still worth it. The illustrations alone make the clothes look so easy and dear.
I found the wishing well vintage fabric at another Goodwill here in town. A small amount, just perfect for a small person's brand new dress.
I spend much of these days wishing her well, wishing us both well, as we figure things out together.
