geranium

I finally joined in on the Geranium Dress craze. And I can't believe how easy it was to make these two tunics for Charlotte. That Rae is a genius.

I used an older Alexander Henry print for my first one that I've had in my stash for years.

And it fits! Tunic length, sleeveless geranium dress.

And for my second, I used pieces of fabric from Leslie at Maze & Vale, paired up with some grey chambray.

The best part about sewing baby clothes? They take hardly any fabric!!! My least favorite part of sewing clothes is cutting out the pieces, but with baby sizes, it's a breeze. Now I wish Charlotte's entire wardrobe was handmade.

Cuteness! I cut out four baby dresses + two pairs of bloomers a couple weeks before Easter and am realizing now that it was easy to cut out the little pieces in multiples, but there are just as many steps as sewing larger ones (although thankfully no fitting). I'm almost done - just a few hems and buttonholes to do and then I can move on to new projects :)
