I found this lovely Swiss dot at Joann's a few weeks back. I couldn't wait to show it to Jessica and I really hoped that it was something she'd like for Isabella. Thank goodness she did or I might have cried. I let her choose the pattern, McCalls 4424 and then added my own touches.
I almost decided to drive myself crazy and match the side seams but then decided not to. I did trim the bottom in a black batiste. I think it adds a bit of sophistication.
Can a baby be sophisticated?
The bodice is lined with white Kona cotton. Finding two matt black buttons the right size made me very happy.
There is a very cute pair of bloomers to match.
Under no circumstances do I want to rush this baby, but I will really enjoy it when she is here and I can see her in these dresses!
