Last month was particularly special though as I become both and Auntie and a Godmother. As my Brother and best friend both had beautiful babies.
So I figured it was time to stop making grown up clothes and start on some baby gear. Well the first thing I noticed was how much less fabric you need, also how quick baby clothes are to sew. Fabulous! As a bit of a lazy sewer anything quick and easy really grabs my attention.
I made this dress for my God daughter using a bit of left over silk with pelican print all over it and a free pattern from Sew Much Ado find the pattern here. I also decided to have my first try of French seams (I know I can't believe I have never done one before). Well I don't know what I was so worried about, they were a easy to do and gave a lovely finish inside. Think I will be adding French seams to everything I make from now on. Tilly does a great tutorial on French seams here.
Now to make something for my Nephew.... I'm not sure he will be up for a pink silk pelican dress??
Happy sewing xxx
