Babies are delightful. They are a delight to sew for as well. Do they ever complain about fit, fashion or fabric, like the older ones. And they look so cute when wearing the dresses you have embroidered and sewn yourself.

Who needs a better motivation than this to sew a newborn baby dress like this one. How to sew the baby girl dress patten — cutting and making. Cut out the pattern pieces for the front bodice and back bodice as per the pattern below.

Fold them by the center and mark the pattern and cut. Back and front pattern pieces are the same. I am using some soft cotton pieces I had in my stash for making this.

Since I decided to add embroidery I am joining a small white piece in the middle. You can make the seam a discreet french seam so that the seams wouldnot irritate the delicate skin of the baby.

Do prewash the fabric you will making the dress with. Prewashing is needed so that the dress wouldnot shrink after sewing and the harmful chemicals in the fabric would not irritate the baby skin. You also need facing pieces for the top edge, armhole binding strips and a long fabric strip to make the sash.

Sash — 44 inch long piece 2. Do some embroidery. This is mandatory on a baby girl dress. Ensure that there are no irritating knots or loose threads after the embroidery on the back of the fabric — it may irritate the soft skin. I have made a mirror image of the cute little lamps in the cotton fabric I am using.

Finish the armholes with bias binding. Stitch the bias binding to the armhole rightsides together. I have used hand stitches , because they show up very little on the front of the garment. Attach facing — make casing for sash. First finish the edges of one of the long edge bottom of the facing piece by turning under once and stitching.

Then attach it to the top edge by keeping it face down on the face up bodice right sides together, basically. Turn the facing to the back and stitch the edge. This will give you a casing for the sash. Finish the back bodice. Do the same thing for the back bodice as well- binding the armholes and making the facing — casing. Stitch the hem of the front and back bodice. Ensure that the hems and armholes are aligning.

Stitch the back bodice and front bodice together at the side seams. Make the sash for the neck. Donot stitch the other end shut- you have to turn the tube out.

After the stitching is done you can easily turn the sash inside out with the safety pin. Sew the other end shut with a hand sewing needle and thread and a slip stitch. Insert the sash through the casing and you have the pretty baby dress ready.

Note : Do be careful that the baby donot pull the sash loose, because the baby may pull it to the neck or something, heaven forbid. You can fasten it by making it into a pretty bow and keep an eye on the baby all the time, as well as fasten the sash with a baby safety pin. Related posts.
