The cutest thing I have sewn

A little while ago a friend had a little girl which meant only thing - sewing for tiny people!

I spent a long time browsing patterns and finally settled on the Seaside Sailor Dress by tie dye Diva patterns. I just couldn't resist the collar!

My stash provided the perfect fabric. I had some left over pink cotton with pink and white swirls made of dots. I paired it with a thick white cotton for the collar. The trim is made by using a decorative stitch on my machine. Simple white buttons are the finishing touch.

Being so small it didn't take long to sew, probably 90 minutes. I started it late one night and finished it the following day. Thankfully my sewing machine did the buttonholes perfectly this time. The longest part was ensuring the gathering of the skirt was even all the way round. All of the seams are enclosed and stitched down securely.

I would definitely use this pattern again should any more of my friends have little girls...
