My first Itty Bitty Baby Dress

I bought this cute pillowcase a while back, but it had just been languishing away in my fabric bin. I decided to try out the FREE Made by Rae pattern for an Itty Bitty Baby Dress. Because I used a pillowcase, I was able to use the existing hem for the skirt. I decided to skip the piping because it scared me a little bit, having never used it before.

I made the flower using this tutorial from SewRitzyTitzy. I just did 5 petals, and then sewed it on to the dress along with two buttons stacked on top of each other.

Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing a very Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms, moms-to-be, step-moms, grandmother's, great-grandmothers, and motherly figures out there!

My mother's day is a little extra special this year...
