My first Geranium

Now that I know my friend has recieved it, I am already free to blog about one of the cutest little dresses I've made lately, without spoiling the surprise. A little Geranium, newborn size for my friend's baby girl. 


This pattern was on my to do list for quite a while, but because I only have the free version, I had to wait until I had a newborn girl to sew it for. I was so happy when I knew my friend A. was having a daughter, I knew I'd be making this one for her. 


So, baby L. is born and over a month old already. How come?! And I'm so sad they live so far, I won't be able to see her wearing this. But I hope she wears it (she's big!!). I made the pattern my own and didn't even look at the instructions, so please don't ask me feedback on that. I really only used the pattern pieces. I've added a peter pan collar, well, actually I've appliqué it. It's a fake collar, sewn into the dress, only in the front. I added a vintage button in the middle (I know her mommy would appreciate the vintage look!). These buttons, came from a thrift market and I've been saving them for a special piece. Here they are now. 


I skipped the pockets on my own. And fully lined the dress. Instead of a regular hem I decided to make it a little bubble and I couldn't be happier about it. 


The dress closes at the back with two of the same buttons I used in the front. Don't you just love this fabric? I know I do. It was part of a box full of goodies that I got from sweet Maria around Christmas time. I still have a little left. Wondering what I can use it for, but I know I'll find something special, sooner or later.

    1. Há muito tempo que tinha este molde na lista dos afazeres, não comprei o molde, tenho apenas o grátis. E gostei muito de o fazer. Talvez um dia me decida finalmente a comprar com todos os tamanhos. Por enquanto, ainda tenho muitos mais para experimentar e não vale a pena ter mais um na pilha dos que já cá cantam... lol
      A Maria tem muito bom gosto, enviou-me 3 peças de tecido e adorei cada um deles.

  3. I saw your comment on my blog and I became curious :-) Indeed the fabric looks very similar. This dress is so cute. It should have been nice for the daughter I don't have ;-)

    1. Thanks Joy. The simpliest patterns are sometimes the best. We know they work and fit, and can always personalize them, right?!

  8. Just darling, Magda!!! I love the little 5 sided buttons and the addition of the faux Peter Pan collar at the front is so clever.
