Maria's Itty Bitty Baby Dress

One of my bestest friends in the whole wide world recently had an ickle baba! So I just had to make a little something to welcome Maria Ines into the world. And it really is little. This is the Itty Bitty Baby Dress pattern from Made by Rae, made in some cotton I'm pretty sure I picked up at a stash swap once upon a time (thanks to whoever gave me this!), lined in... erm... polka dots and trimmed with polka dot bias binding. It's a super simple make, and one I'm sure I'll be making again as more of my friends catch the baby fever. Next time I think I'll make the straps a little longer, as once you tie them up they seem a little short. Perhaps I should have put a tape measure or coin in the photo like online fabric shops do to provide a sense of scale, but believe me when I say this really is itty bitty. It's just sooooo ickle and cuuuute! Eep!!!
