Itty Bitty Dress

After a few months of "yes-you-can, no-you-can't" conversations with myself, I finally commited to a new project...a never before attempted feat, of making a little girl's dress. I had lofty goals last year of sewing dresses for our little one, but got no further than covering burp cloths before my inspiration of all-things-girly-and-cute came to a screeching halt.
While home recovering from last weeks surgery, I found myself all over ETSY, and the crafting/sewing blogs here on blogspot. I ran across a dress over at called the "Itty Bitty Dress" sized for a newborn. After determining that I actually thought I had a shot at being able to complete this dress, I found a link to a FREE pattern for the Itty Bitty Dress( who doesn't love FREE stuff?) for a size 2T-3T pattern over at I printed out the pattern, went through my fabric stash and got to sewing this morning. The entire project took 1 1/2 hours from start to finish.
So, if any of you are feeling crafty, and have a little girl in your life that loooves dresses, I highly recommend this pattern for a easy afternoon project...and while you sew, your husband can do mine did...Something like re-building the delapidated fence that fell down two months ago. I married Mr. Fix-it..and boy am I lucky he's as crafty outside, as I am inside..otherwise, my neighbors would get an eyeful when summer comes around and they find me sunning in the backyard! Privacy will be nice (=
