Floral Geranium

Right before Violet was born I made the cutest little geranium! I decided to go a different color route than I would have normally chosen and I love the combination!

 This is 3-6 month size and it looks like it will be fitting Violet in the fall so the colors are perfect!
I can just imagine this with a cute pair of cowgirl boots <3 I need to get some for my little girl! Do they come in baby sizes? I guess I'll find out!

 With this dress I finally mastered my button-holer!
I haven't used it much because button holes frighten me but this dress was the first I've ever made that I felt confident, they turned out great and were pretty quick compared to my other tries.

I haven't hemmed the dress in these photos, oops, blame it on pregnancy procrastination, lol!
The fabric was from my stash that might be from Joanns. It doesn't really wash the best and gets wrinkly so I'm not sure how it will hold up over time.

Hazelbee Baby Dress

When we found out we were having a girl I immediately wanted a woven dress pattern (the geranium) and a knit dress pattern that I could use as a staple for our baby girl. I asked my facebook group what knit dress pattern would be good and a lot of people recommended the Hazelbee Baby Dress so I purchased it and have been very pleased!

I made the crossover option since I wanted one for our girl to wear as soon as possible and the crossover is the only option in the bundle that goes down to 0-3 months. 


Here is our sweet girl wearing it! The fabric I used has very little stretch and fits her perfectly, well its a little big but that is perfect for a newborn :0) In this picture Violet is 6lbs 7oz so you can see it fits a small baby.

I really love how it fits and it was sooo easy to put on! I love that its a dress but the comfort of a newborn gown!

 The sewing was flawlessly easy and I finished it in under an hour, I think in about 30 minutes, which as I've mentioned before I am not a fast sewer. I go at my own pace which can take a bit more time ;0) this pattern was easy and had a layer option for printing that I've not had the privilege of using before, it was awesome! Seriously love this pattern! I need to make a few more for her, yes I need to even though her drawers are plumb full, haha! Girls I love finally having one!!!
