When Alyssa was pregnant and learned the baby would be a girl, I had so many plans for all the pretty things I would make her. I made her first quilt and her crib bedding and covers for 2 bassinets (had to have one for my house).
I surprised myself by crocheting a sweet little hat for her to wear home from the hospital. There were also two itty bitty dresses that were so itty bitty, the were too small for her nearly 8 pound newborn self. In the two and a half years since her birth, I've failed to make all the frilly dresses I'd envisioned. I watch her while mommy works, so we spend our days playing, leaving very little time for sewing. Playing is more fun and more important, but after seeing this cutie, I decided I must get back in the sewing room. I may have overdone the pink. Can you over-do it when it comes to little girls and pink?
I didn't use a pattern, just an easy little elastic waist skirt in super cute fabric I'd been saving for something special. Yea, I'd say she meets that requirement. I believe the fabric is older than the girl.
She loved it and has already placed her next order.
