One of my friends is having a girl any day now, so I had to whip up the Little Geranium Dress. This free pattern by Made by Rae can be downloaded on her website. She also has the dress in larger sizes for sale, but I knew this little number would fit my friend’s newborn.
I made my own pintucks for the front, and added mustard colored trim. The fabric is a Lisette made for fall 2011. I kept holding on to it because it needed something, I just couldn’t put my finger on it until I paired it with the yellow trim. It does a great job of brightening the blue up.
I love the little yellow buttons on the back. This is a great easy pattern and like Rae explains, has so many options. You could shorten it into a tunic, add flutter sleeves, change up the neckline and it would look like a completely different dress.
I added my label, to make the dress look more official.
I am still working on my bridesmaids dress, and should have it done to show off later this week. It does not look bad, however, “I LOVE sewing with satin!” said no seamstress, EVER. Believe me, it is not a thing. Satin is not forgiving, at all.
