A friend of mine from church is having a baby girl soon. They already have a little boy who is just 10 days older than our girls, so it's been fun to see her anticipate the arrival of a little pink bundle of joy! To help her celebrate, I made a little outfit for her soon-to-arrive sweetheart.
You may recognize the fabric from the corduroy peasant dresses I made our girls. There were only a few tiny scraps left, but that's enough to make a skirt for an itty bitty one!
I think the skirt is about 6" long...oh my goodness! So tiny!
The shirt was my first attempt at appliqueing. They are naming her Harper, so I wanted to make something both cute and personal for her. It went pretty well, although I definitely learned a few things along the way. I'm going to be appliqueing shirts for our girls' 2nd birthday, so I was glad for the chance to try out the technique.
My favorite part is these adorable little shoes! The outer fabric is the patterned corduroy I talked about in the corduroy peasant dress post, and the lining is a vintage floral pattern (shocker, I know). It's soft and comfy and just right for those sweet little feet! I didn't take a separate photo of the headband, but it's just a simple yo-yo flower sewn onto a crocheted headband.
