Little Dress in the Big Woods

Dress is cute AND delicious!

I bought this fabric right after I found out we were having a baby girl. I love the –pattern–lots of tiny flowers, but not overly girly. I wasn’t sure what to do with it.

I have been listening to the audiobook of Little House in the Big Woods with Silas. I realized that I was picturing Baby Carrie as a tiny baby–although I believe she would have actually been a toddler–and that I was picturing her in this fabric.

Three nap times later, and I had my Baby Carrie dress.

(And then one more nap time to get a listing on my etsy site.)

Of course, after having Petra wear it all day yesterday, I want her to wear nothing elseShe has piles of lovely clothes, and so I can’t justify making her a dozen of these, but I very much want to.

Send your friends with cute little girlies to check out that listing, and maybe I’ll get to make a few more. 🙂
