A Dress For The Girl

Not long after finding out that she was having a girl, Jess found this fabric.  It's one of the Lisette fabrics sold at Joann's. It's a sweet pink (slightly salmon) lawn, that's very easy to sew. She let me choose Simplicity 4243 for the pattern. 
It's a very simple pattern. Hopefully easy for a wee one to wear. I did change the back closure to three buttons instead of a zipper.
The sizing was kind  of aggravating. It's one of those xxs, xs, s, m, l deals, I'd rather they use pounds or months or something like that.
The front has small pleats that give it just enough fullness without being fussy. 
Don't get me wrong, I'm not against fussy. I'm sure I'll indulge in fussy later.


  1. So sweet. That reminds me of the little dresses and pants that grandma Fox would make for you and Sherie. I love it.

  2. Oh how yummy for a little sweet tater tot! To be able to sew for pink...never got to do that and I'm living vicariously through you! Another wonderful clothing project finished perfectly! You amaze me!

  3. This is my favorite way to dress baby girls- pink, old-fashioned sweetness!!

  4. It really is just so sweet Corinnea! I agree about the sizing and the fit when it comes to these brand name patterns. Give me a Oliver + S anyday!

  5. I love it. It is baby sweet. You have the best dressed granbabies.
