Clothes for small people

One last PR Weekend related post, and that's the end.  I promise.

Unless I think of something else.

This dress was made (and mentioned) several months ago, but I didn't want to post it until I'd handed it over to the recipient - Deepika - which I did at our Friday evening dinner at the Berghoff.

Here's the dress for the official Patternreview baby, based on Burda 9680, and made from a combination of Amy Butler remnants, a brown-and-white spotted man's shirt, lots of white eyelet ruffles and a handful of rosebuds. 

I was going for cute, and I think I succeeded.  Any cuter, and it might make your teeth hurt.

The best compliment I got on a garment during all of PR Weekend was on this - someone looked at it and said, "If I didn't know you'd made it, I'd know.  It looks like something you'd make." 

Which it does.  I hadn't really thought about my baby clothes being as me as my own clothes.

Really, really cute, Karen! Isn't sewing clothes for small people a nice break?
