Eyelet Baby Dress

I did this project, if I'm not mistaken, back in August, right after I finished the blue floral dress. Practice makes perfect, that's what they say, so I am trying to master the art of sewing baby dresses and girl dresses for my two daughters. You know, it was my dream to do this thing, and believe me, the feeling of accomplishment every end of each project is very strong. As a hands on mom, I can be very busy, getting caught up between cooking, cleaning up after my kids, breastfeeding and stuff, but of course, I shall always find time to bring out my machine and create something.








If you examine this dress closely, you'll notice that there is something wrong with the shoulders.
I still can't figure out how to conceal the hem in that area.





I also ran out of pink fabric for the front bow and back ribbon.
Anyhow, I like it that the armholes are perfect and the back closure is looking neat.




My little one wore this dress to church one Sunday, but I totally forgot to take photos. Anyway, like I said, I am still on the practicing this craft so pardon if there is no tutorial yet. Basically, I just pulled a dress from the closet that fist nicely to my baby daughter, traced the pattern from there, cut the fabric, and sew right then.

Good news, I have a new dress done and is up for the next sewing post. I know I was supposed to feature it for Halloween like I mentioned in my IG. It doubles as a holiday dress, too, so please wait as I try to come up with a tutorial for it. Till then.

  4. Wow! You are such a talented and creative mommy! This post reminded me of my childhood when my mama used to make dresses for me and my sister. This dress may have not been perfected yet but I believe that it is one of the most beautiful dresses in the world because it was made with so much love.

  5. So cute! :D I have already given up of needle crafting (sewing, crocheting and knitting) as I no longer have to time to try and re-learn the skill. I think the only needle craft that I have done that I was really able to finish something was cross-stitching. And that was waaaay back. LOL

    1. I also have problem with time. Huhuhu. Like the other day, I was supposed to finish a dress, but my baby wouldn't take her afternoon noon. So yeah, it's delayed again.

    1. You can try, hun. Get a basic sewing machine as first step, then google how to make a simple dress. YouTube has a lot of tutorials as well.

  9. Wow! :) I must admit that I cannot sew so I admire those who are great at it and can create their own clothes and dresses. I've bought myself one of those compact easy to use sewing machines a long time ago but till now I haven't gotten around to getting it out of the box. Gosh!

  11. OMG. I'm definitely following you. It's been a dream to sew dresses for my daughter but I just can't find the time between work and housechores. I'll just live my dream through you. Iba kasi pag foreigner gumagawa compared with a Filipina mom. Mas relate ako. Haha.

  13. Hi mommy, I wish I have this skills to sew, kasi my daughter wants barbie dresses and siya rin gusto ko ipagtahi sana, para I get to choose what design I like, kaso kulang ako sa time talaga and skills narin to do it. Anyhow, i envy you kasi you can now make your own and will check on your tutorial as well, sa you tube ko lang kasi nakikita yung iba.
