Little Geranium ~ big cuteness factor


This dress is seriously small! And seriously cute! It's the Little Geranium pattern and it's free on Rae's blog. I had a wonderful time making this little dress for my friend's new baby. Picking the fabrics, cutting the tiny pattern pieces. Imagining a new little person inside. (sigh) I have yet to meet this new little girl, but cannot wait to see her and give this dress to her mom and dad.
And, of course, I can't wait to see her wearing it. It seems like eons ago that my little girl was this small. But I do remember being stressed and tired and not wanting to fool around with difficult garments. So instead of buttons on the back, I put snaps. Easy on, easy off. 
I love the full skirt on this dress and those little pockets and that thick hem. Rae's patterns are so awesome in their thoroughness and I'm always happy with the finished product. I'm thinking I may have to get with it and buy the bigger pattern for my daughter. It's that good. 
Oh, and I figured a matching little hair bow/band would be super cute with this dress so I put one together pretty fast. Elastic+fabric tube+bow=easy.
Cannot wait to wrap this gift up and give it away!!
