I give you Olivia's dress:
I made the dress in a few hours with some lovely cotton print from my local over-priced Norwegian craft store. For the pattern I used vintage Simplicity 4507.
The pattern had some lovely features including a scallop shaped sleeve and tiny, tiny little pin tucks.
And to finish my seams I used some super soft vintage rayon seam tape that I had stashed away. No rough edges on this baby's skin.
I really loved sewing this dress, and I loved how much the baby's mother loved the dress, but best of all, I REALLY loved how many jaws dropped at the shower when they all asked where I bought it and I said I made it.
Isn't that just the best part of making anything by hand?
