Itty Bitty Baby Girl Gift



A friend of ours just recently had a little baby girl.  I jumped on the opportunity to indulge in a pink project.  I found this adorable apple corduroy at Joann's and thought that it would make a fun autumn dress for the new little lady.


I used Rae's free Itty Bitty Baby Dress pattern.  Because this would be a winter baby, I thought that I'd have to make some coordinating long sleeve onesies to go with the little dress.


I used Rit dyes to color a couple of packs of onesies.  


 I experimented with a couple of dyes to get a range of colors.  I have some green onesies on hand for a couple of little boys that are on their way.





I also whipped up a pair of these baby booties to go with the new dress. I had intended on making a pair of ruffle bum leggings, but my sewing machine is on the fritz.  I might have to send them off later.

I'm linking up here.  Thanks for reading.

Adorable!!! I love the fabric (and I LOVE corduroy dresses on little girls). How was the itty bitty baby dress pattern? I keep meaning to make one of those for my cousin's baby... but I'm not very good at sewing clothes! :) It's on my to do list!

What a lucky little girl! Love the apple corduroy. And I adore the colors you chose to die the onesies... perfect! The appliqued apples are a sweet touch. And those booties look store-bought... amazing work!

Melissa said...

Super cute!! I just bought some of this fabric last week to make a skirt for my daughter!
Love those appliques too, what a great idea!! How on earth did you do those booties? I thought they were store bought till I read a little farther!! I'm your newest follower visiting from Whatever Goes Wednesday.

What an adorable outfit! And you did a fantastic job of getting the right shades of onesies to match that fantastic apple corduroy. Oh, and the booties are just the perfect finishing touch. Lucky little girl, so stylish so young. :)

Apples are very apt for autumn, great choice! Very generous to include a top and make shoes as well, georgeous outfit.
