I've had some time on my hands
Since Jason has been gone the last six nights or so, I've had some free time on my hands after Drew goes to bed at night. This dress is my latest creation. Since I draw the pattern on my own, I never really know if it will fit her well or not in the end. Luckily, it fits like a dream.
She is perfect to make clothes for because I could tie a trash bag around her waist and she would make it look good. But she is pretty amazing in zebra stripes.
My philosophy on little girl's clothes:
1. It should be something that I would most likely wear if it were made in my size.
2. It MUST be comfortable fit.
3. And it MUST go on and come of easy. Elastic waists are the best. Things can still look fashionable and have elastic waistbands.
I love Drew's round little belly and am sad when I have to zip and button up her jeans and they dig right in when she bends over. Babies shouldn't be subject to the uncomforts of fashion at such an early age.
