My Little Cupcake - Itty Bitty Dress for Baby Widad

Yeay I managed to finish one rushed project, an Itty Bitty Dress, in My Little Cupcake print. As you can see, it is meant to be saccharine sweet coz it's a gift for my little niece Widad! We're going back to Kota Bharu tomorrow for a much needed break with my in laws. I so looking forward to finally meeting my new niece and wanted to make a special dress for her, so I cut & sew this in just one night!

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 :

Phewwww! Till later friends, have a great day! :)

  7. Hi from Chicago!
    Great dress. I agree about the piping. The trim is cuter anyway. LOL!. I LOVE the hem. Good thinking out of the box. There is a trend of mismatched
    2-3" hems on our little ones clothes. It's great. We can recycle all our bits of fabric.

  8. kak ain - thank you kak! alah..zura pun sama kak kenkadang tu kemalasan melanda walaupun dalam planning banyak yang nak dijahit. lagi haru kalau time tempahan banyak angin M melanda huhu

    kak hanim - thank you! i've been keeping that cute fabric for so long,finally the perfect project to use it :)

    Mikhaila - Oh hi Mikhaila! Wow, thank you for dropping by, how sweet of you! Yup agree that contrasting trims is a good stash/scrap buster :)
