When my friend had her first little baby girl a month or so back, I knew I had to make her darling little girl a fabulous Sundress. A month or so passed, and I was still waiting for inspiration to strike, as I saw one precious picture after another.

It wasn’t until I whipped up this belt for my Pattern Remix Series, that inspiration struck!

The dress was really more of an afterthought, something to match the belt. And after I made it, I immediately kicked myself for not whipping up the tutorial to go along with it.

But all things happen for a reason. Because with Lina in mind, I was able to tweak it so that it would fit comfortably on a newborn, without too much hassle for getting a custom-made dress over their precious little head.

Sometimes, its all about the details…

Til next time, Happy Sewing!

  1. That sundress is so cute! If my grandbabies were girls I would be sewing up a storm. I am working on a little bubble for grandson #2 at the moment though, and I’ll put his monogram on the pocket.

  2. Oh how I wish blogging had been around when my girls were little. This is so sweet – the colors and fabric right down to the lace and pink ties. Lina is one lucky girl 🙂

  3. So cute. I think my baby really needs one! Thanks for sharing!
