i’ve been making plenty of garments for myself, but the other day, when confronted with a little lady’s first birthday, i thought why not make her something? little people are so much easier to sew for, you don’t need much fabric and don’t have many complicated fitting issues [assuming you’re not making pants]. she can pair this frock with a leggings-over-diaper look for her next tea party.
this toddler dress pattern is free and easy to modify for any size. i had some small pieces of this awesome kayo horaguchi fabric after making my own dress, and i thought it would be fun for a baby to wear–not only for the pink & black zebra, but so she can ponder the carrot chandeliers and learn about negative space from all the hidden pictures in this design.
