Last week I made a trip to the fabric store, and naturally came away with a whole lot of fabric that I couldn't do without - I could just imagine all those cute little projects unfolding. I am really not a shopper and almost never buy clothes for myself or the kids, but there is something about fabric that I can't resist. This dress is a result of this little splurge, and is such a loose, easy dress for my little summertime lady. The pattern (here - from Blooms and Bugs) was such a quick sew that there are a few more dresses in line. While I'm not a huge fan of dresses for crawlers, I made this one short enough that she can still get around, and I know it is only a matter of time (yikes) before Freja's walking.
With summer here (and the inevitable time spent out of doors and a very bald baby head), I've been anxious to find a hat that Freja would keep on her head. I've been experimenting with different bonnets (and hopefully will be sharing a little tutorial here soon), and decided to put one together to go with the dress. So far she keeps it on her head most of the time.
