The number one thing people want to know about the baby is, “boy or girl?” People have been making their predictions since they first found out I was pregnant. Well, we are about 85% sure our little one is a girl, pending a follow-up ultrasound in a couple of weeks!
I feel confident enough about her, well, being a “her” that I have started my sewing projects. It has been so hard waiting on some of the things that I want to make. I have a huge list going of all the fun free patterns that I have found in various corners of the internet, and I can finally tackle it!
I decided on this little dress from Made by Petchy for my first project because of how easy it looked. Pair that with a June birthdate, I thought it would be perfect for her to wear through the summer. The fabric is from my trip to the LA Fashion district. At the time I went, I did not know whether our baby was a boy or a girl, so I just bought fabric that was soft and made of natural fibers. What is funny is that when going through my fabric again, I noticed that many of the ones that I purchased were “boy” colors, mostly blues and greens. I must have been subconsciously thinking about a boy at the time!
I really don’t mind using boy colors for a girl, though. I am actually not the biggest fan of pink, or even purple unless the colors they are paired with are just right. For the main body of the dress I used a super soft cotton knit that has a subtle dot pattern on it. I made the binding from a striped open weave cotton.
