KCWC Day 1

My first sewing project for the kcwc just had to be a baby dress :)
... I sometimes get fed up with using commercial patterns. They're expensive, flimsy, and more often than not, they don't turn out right in the size and fit ... so instead, I bought a super-cute, newborn baby halter neck dress from the op shop, and made my own pattern ...
I traced around the bodice and took measurements of the skirt...
and then just used the original as a construction guide :)
So easy!
Looking forward to day 2 :)
