Itty bitty dress with a ruffle trim

Remember my Itty Bitty dress that I made last week? I got the pattern from Made-by-Rae. Well anyways, I made yet another cute little dress with the pattern. For this one I added a rosette, crystal button, and a tulle ruffle trim. The result, just too darn cute:

So for the bottom trim I just unfolded the bias tape, then made a long ruffle strip with the tulle folded in half, and attached the tulle to the bias strip. Then I pinned it to the bottom of the dress and sewed in place.

For the rosette, I took a long strip of fabric and folded it into a thin strip. I then twisted it over and over to form a little rosette. Then I sewed around the rosette to keep in place. After, I sewed trim to the dress. I hand sewed on the little crystal button.

Since this is yet another gift for my husband's cousin, I also made a little diaper cover for the dress. I used the pattern from Dana Made It.

Here is the darling outfit together:

Isn't it just perfect!?! If this doesn't give you baby fever, I don't know what will! I also added a little ruffle trim to the front of the diaper cover to give it that extra something. You could do a lot with both of these patterns. Creativity is endless people!

Adorable! You are so talented! I wish I was good at the sewing machine like you...but then again, I really don't need one other hobby. That's what friends are for! :)
