My youngest was due to be born in early February, and I was determined to make my daughters matching Easter dresses before I went into labor. I finished the second dress on the afternoon of February 1st. I started having contractions at 4:00 in the morning on February 2nd, and my youngest daughter was born at around 2:30 in the afternoon that day. I finished just in time.
The dress is the Sweet Little Dress pattern from leila & ben (There is a separate Sweet Little Dress for Babies pattern for sizes 3 to 12 months). I love this dress. It is so quick and easy to make, and the pattern instructions are very simple to follow.
The dress is super comfortable and has a very flexible fit, since the neckline and sleeves are elastic. My oldest had no problem running around in it while searching for Easter eggs.
It would look great with a pair of leggings when the weather gets cooler. And when my daughter gets a little taller, she can continue to wear it as a shirt.
