Yellow "Flutterby" Baby Dress

Inspired by discount fabric section at the craft store and my successful christening gown, I decided I need to make more dresses and stuff for my baby girl.

I got half a yard of fabric on sale and searched pinterest for some free patterns. I found this tutorial: Flutterby Top and ran with it! (I didn't print the pattern since it's so simple and not her size, just used it as inspiration to draft my own pattern based on one of her dresses that fits.)

Construction-wise it was simple and went together quickly. I wish I had sized it up a little bit so she can wear it longer--I will on the next one I sew.  I used snaps on the back closure because of laziness (Both sewing and fastening wise), though buttons probably would have looked better. I added some ribbon and a bow that I had laying around in my fabric stash, and it was done in one day. It would have taken more than one day if my husband hadn't been home to watch kids though. #momlife

  

There it is! My model was being cute but uncooperative. She's 10 months and always on the move, hence the blur! Hopefully the first of many cute outfits for the summer.
