DIY Fancy Baby Dress!

Alex Tingley —  December 6, 2014 — Leave a comment

I was looking at baby Dresses trying to find some fancy ones when I came across this one. I fell in love with it!


So I decided to try and do one myself.

I found the bodice pattern here. I used the 3-6 month pattern. The rest I just kind made up as I went.





So I did 2 layers for the skirt and put the ruffles on the under skirt.



I put a binding around the top layer I didn’t have to hem it. I also bubbled the last ruffle on the under skirt to go all the way around the bottom. There are also little leggings with a ruffle (The blue ruffle on the very bottom).



I had So much fun making this little dress! I hope you enjoyed this post!




This should be fun!

Hey y’all!

So, I am going to start a series! Some of you may have seen my post about “Oh the things you can make“. So, starting January, once a week I’m going to find something, women’s or children’s, then I will find a way to make/buy the same outfit for way less. I think this will be a fun experiment. Keep an eye out for my DIY-for-less posts! :)
