The “pretty as a picture” dress from Handmade Beginnings by Anna Maria Horner has been on my list for a bit.
I bought some Lizzy House Guising (and am proud of myself for going with brown, it’s not typically my favorite) and dug into the pattern, which didn’t really end up being as difficult as I was expecting. Clothes for tiny humans seem to be complicated mostly because of the small size. The patterns themselves aren’t too bad. I do kinda wish I had a serger, the inside seams would look nicer than the zigzag seams.
I didn’t quite get the elastic on the bodice taut enough, so it does gape a bit off the little miss. However, I’m going to make a winter version, so I’m hoping to redeem myself. Between this dress and the Quick Change Trousers, the book seems to have been a worthy purchase. I have the new AMH patterns on my wish list, so that I can make bigger kid versions of these items (hint, hint).
