Babies are such a great way to start people

A good friend of mine is having a baby girl in February. She’s actually the sister of the Hubs’ best childhood friend, whom I was on a date (of sorts) with when I met the Hubs. And whose mother was my coworker at Barnes and Noble and takes credit for my marriage, since she set her son and I up, leading to the “date” on which I met the Hubs. And my friend married a good friend of the Hubs and her brother/the childhood best bud. Follow? Good. Anyways, love that girl and am so excited for her to be a mommy. And dying to find out what her name will be (they are keeping it a secret).

So excited, in fact, that I whipped up this little sundress number for the bundle of joy to wear next summer, using B3405 .

The fabric is from an old dress of my sister-in-law’s, of which I totally forgot to snap a picture. Think this (which is actually the dress, but chopped short), but with this length skirt. I have more than enough fabric left over to make a dress for Bean.

The cotton eyelet lace is from my Mom’s amazing stash (she and I have an affinity for the stuff). As are the buttons which of course I forgot to take a picture of. Geeze, I really dropped the ball on picture taking with this project, didn’t I?? Just picture cute white buttons down the back. Anyways, I love the fabric with the lace – gives it a feminine feel with out all the pink or heinous purple.

 

I just can’t wait to see the little squishy she-whose-name-will-not-be-said in this number next year!
