A Fall dress for my favourite Welsh-Midwestern toddler

My baby dresses are a hit! And the joy of being able to make a fully finished garment in an evening is irresistible.

This time, it was a Fall version for Karys, my little Welsh-American friend. I used very fine corduroy, brown for the bodice and a pink and brown pattern for the skirt. Puzzlingly, the pattern was printed perpendicular to the grain of the fabric (which, as it’s corduroy, is unavoidable), but hopefully baby K can forgive me! I finished it off with pink buttons and a pink grosgrain ribbon, which was topstiched on with pink thread.

And here is the little missus modelling it herself! Although apparently this is not a finalized outfit, I actually dig the pattern matching. Also: I think the dog is a fan.

Let me know what you think!
