baby dress

i owe a good friend of mine a gift for her (semi) newborn ms lizzy rose. even her name makes me smile nevermind her q-t pictures.
everything for baby has a good selection of gifts for newborns.

the book comes complete with full size patterns for all of the projects in the back of the book. it also rates each project by ease and estimates the time it would take to complete the project. i chose linen dress on page 85 for a 6m-12m baby. i think the book assumes more than basic sewing knowledge and terms. i looked up how to add bias to an armhole and ended up leaving out the knife pleat because i was nervous her little arms may need a little more space as she grows. i embellished the dress with a set of cute gingham buttons that leigh gave me. i have just been waiting for the perfect project to use them.
