BabyShower Gift

In november my boyfriends niece was born. I love cute (vintage) baby clothes so I decided to make a cute dress as a gift.
My mom made me adorable dresses when I was a child (I'll post a picture of such a dress very soon ;)) I think that's where I got my love for petticoats and big dresses.

The dress I finished a couple of months ago but couldn't blog about it because I wanted the dress to be a surprise.

The pattern I used was Burda 9802

Just now, while writing this and  looking for a picture of the pattern, I realise I made a mistake. I thought the pattern didn't include seam allowances so I added the seam allowances. That explains why the dress looked so big. But children grow so that won't be such a big problem ;).

I have to keep this in mind when I use an other pattern of Burda. I'm used to using patterns of Burda Style, and these patterns doesn't include seam allowances.
Below you can see my result. I love it! It's such a cute dress and bloomers!

(In the background you can see my granny square blanket that is not yet finished. When i'ts finished I'll post a tutorial about this ;)

You may recognise the fabric. I made my cherry shirt out of the remnants of this baby dress.

Have a great Sunday evening!
