Pretty in pink





We had a lot of plans cancelled on the weekend because a lot of our engagements were ill. This winter has been ferocious! We are OK, though I think we may be on the edge of a dreaded lurgy. Good thing the kids loooove taking their multivitamins! (Does that help? Who knows.)

While it is awful everyone is so sick, the plus side was a big chunk of unallocated time to craft.

So I made this.

It is a little toooo pink, I think- I chose brown buttons to try and calm the whole pink vibe down. Once their is a little girl baby in there, I'm sure it will look delicious. It is "newborn size" which in pattern speak means enormous, which is good, because the Baby Girl recipient is due in August, so it will be a while before the weather warms up.

Overall it is a pretty easy pattern. I nearly left a safety pin inside...hmmm safety. And I don't like the press stud installation- I think it would have been wise to use some interfacing. I am worried that pulling the press studs apart will tear the fabric.

Anyways, I think it is a cute little baby dress. I might see how it works out in real life for my new little friend before I make anymore though.

Oh, not too pink AT ALL! LOVE it! Very sweet. Very well done. I guess as my word verification says, it's a "hoota".
