My Little Cupcake - Itty Bitty Dress for Baby Widad
I used the popular Itty Bitty Dress pattern by Made by Rae. As mentioned in her blog the pattern is really small, more suitable for preemies. I added half inch to it, praying it would fit baby Widad. I changed a few things to suit what notions I have in stash.
I sewed in a Fuchsia Laced Bias Tape I purchased from Holland instead of the piping called for in the instruction. Mainly because I don't have cotton piping and making one at 12 midnite is just too daunting for me. I think it's cute, don't you think so too?
I also opted to add a bottom band for contrast instead of the bias tape because again too lazy to cut small bias strips to make one myself lol. I just cut 3 inches wide fabric the same length of the skirt, folded it to make a double fold bottom band and attached it to the skirt, easy peasy.
Can't wait to put this on baby Widad, will take pictures of her in it I promise. I'll be in Kelantan till Sunday so no sewing till next week. Which worries me coz my work-in-progress is building up on me. Here's a sneak peek of what I'm up too :
