Simplicity 4243 - Bird Dress
This fabric might look familiar. That's because this is the left over from the Car Organizer. I really like these colors together, although I know it's a bit bright.
I really had fun making this! I learned a lot too! It was the first time that I used bias tape like this (at the neckline and armholes) and also put in a zipper. The elastic for the diaper cover was a bit confusing because the measurement were huge! I actually shortened the waist elastic by about 2 or 3 inches. This is a size XS, which should be for a 0-3 month old. But, it looks awfully large, so I'm not sure when she will be able to wear it. I can't wait to see her in it!
By the way, this took WAY longer than 15 minutes :)
