learn how to cut and sew a newborn baby girl dress
I would have posted this a long time, but I travelled with my family for our vacation. I become lazy whenever I’m on holiday. Below is an illustration to help you learn how to cut and sew a newborn baby girl dress.
The fabric I used, is a left over fabric from a project I made. The fabric is so beautiful and soft. I love the floral print. So, I was contemplating on using it to make a blouse for myself; but you know, mama makes sacrifices for their children. 😄
I bought lots of yellow fabric, I still have some yards left. I love the brightness of the yellow fabric. The fabric makes a good contrasting fabric blend to the floral fabric. It looks really great.
The front of the dress is gathered. I made it two layers, just to make it look more girly. I also made two flare sleeves. Every little girl needs a bow.
The back is quite different from the front. You need an elastic for the gathering of the back. To get the look, you will first sew the back top pieces to the back bottom before folding to create a space for the elastic.
Attach two ropes ( use the fabric to make a ribbon like rope) to the back of the dress to hold it together.
My big baby has a yellow detail on the first flare. You can do same.
The fabric was not enough to make them a diaper pant, which is a necessity for children of their age.
It literally took me hours to take a picture. I took more than 10, which took me the whole day. I was exhausted.
It’s easy to sew. I will try it on ankara.
