We are heading to Disneyland this weekend, and since it is Ruby's first time, she demanded a special outfit. While I've always expected that we'd reach the princess stage, I didn't think it would be as early as 8 months.
Belle Dress Tutorial at Crafterhours last summer, I just couldn't resist. Princess dress up clothes made out of knits? Genius! This pretty dress is just as comfy as all her other baby clothes.
Ruby is a crawler now, so this little dress only comes to about her knees (which only happens to up the cuteness factor about tenfold). We'll save the floor length gowns for later.
Like I said, I used Crafterhour's dress tutorial as my guide, and the Sweet Little Dress pattern by Leila and Ben as my peasant dress starter. I used two men's t-shirts and only materials I had on hand.
Now the wheels in my head are turning, because she might need a whole collection of baby princess dresses. Too young? Nah ... you're never too young for dress up.
