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!!!
