baby dress

My friend Christy is having a little girl, so I attempted my first baby dress for her shower.  I basically sketched out a pattern from an Old Navy baby dress that I liked and went from there.  I am happy with the result.  Cute, little, and feminine.  Just how baby girl clothes should be.


I added some lace at the bottom that I had on-hand.  I think it adds just the right amount of frill.



I wrapped it in simple brown paper, tied a bow, and threw in a cute tag and flower.  I love wrapping gifts in brown paper.  You can use it for any occasion and embellish it however you please.

  2. Brown paper is ALWAYS the best. I like using it with my nieces and nephews when we are wrapping gifts for people, as they like to color on it and make it their own. Sure beats them ruining already patterned wrapping paper. The dress is adorable. I love the top.

  9. The dress is adorable and I love the wrapping job too! Did you make the tag? Brown paper is greener than shiny, un-recycle-able wrapping paper, too.
