I made two versions to practice, both of which have been gifted to special peeps.
First, a 12-18 month version, with gathering. This was made for my sweet little niece, Adelaide. She turns one in December, and her mom tells me it will work well for several months. I think it's always smart to sew a little big for kiddos, and hopefully, she can wear this well into spring.
Version two is for Ara Jane's Ingrid. I sent that little scalloped hat to Ara Jane for her soon-to-be-second, and this dress for the almost big sister! This version has pockets, is a 2T top (not a dress), and has pleats.
And look. The buttons. Adorable.
I plan to make a few for the craft show, but I also expect this will be a go-to baby gift.
