The more confident I become in my children's clothing abilities the more willing I am to sew clothes for other peoples kids. I have a good friend who had her first baby earlier this month and I am finally going to meet her this weekend! I have been sewing up lots of fun things for her, I just love babies!
Last month Crafterhours posted this adorable Racerback dress and I knew I would be making one soon! I made the 12-18 month for Miss C to wear next summer and decided she would need a diaper cover to match. I have used Dana's before over at Made and then added some fun ruffles because, well ruffles make everything cuter! For the headband I used this tutorial but found that 3 layers of each flower size were WAY to many for a baby headband so I used just one of each and that was much better.

What I LOVE most is adding a tag! I am starting to tag all my clothes with the size. I'm using twill tape and a stamp set. Someday I am sure I'll have personalized labels but for now this is a great place to start.
Of course I threw in one of my well loved crinkle ribbon toys. :) I hope Mamma and Miss C are pleased! Happy Friday!
