a dress for Coco
My friend has the most beautiful baby girl. Her name is Coco and she is sweet and teeny and so brand new.
I had a really fun time making this pretty little dress for her. I used my onesie tutorial, but changed things up just a bit.
Here's what I did:
I serged the top of the skirt and sewed the elastic to the front on the serged edge. Then I turned the edge under and attached it to the onesie on the under side of the skirt. This makes the top look a little cleaner. I think I will do it this way from now on.
I also added a huge flower. It seems like fabric flowers are all the rage right now. For this one, I cut several petal shapes from a pale pink linen. I stitched about 1/8 of an inch from the edge all around the petal to keep it from raveling. Then I attached the flower to the dress with a pearl button.
I used a tan linen for the skirt and a white linen for the ruffle.
