Outfit for my Niece

Soooo....I got the urge to create some baby clothes. My little niece is so dang cute (I'm biased, but she is) and I needed to make something just as cute as her.

I have a ton of pretty, rose themed fabric. I just absolutely love Shabby Chic and have visions of beautiful baby clothes in my head. Alas, it never turns out that way for me. lol

Here is the finished outfit. The bloomers are jumbo size, as is the hat. The hat did not come out right, so I had to fudge it with a ribbon and a bow. My blog is my confessional or something...I always have to come clean with my snafu's. ;)

AND, I did not have enough fabric of either print to make the dress one color, so I had to split it up, and the bloomers too. That was NOT in the original pattern design. haha...But hey, it makes this particular outfit all ME from top to bottom. ;)

Someday she will be able to fit in it, and it has a tag in the bloomers 'Handmade by Aunt Jan'.  <3


  1. Oh, that is so sweet. Great fabs for a little girl - shabby chic will be still in by the time she wears it - it may even surprise you how soon.

  2. Can't wait to try it on her!
