And now some details about the dress. It was reconstructed from a thrifted Tommy Hilfiger shirt. The front button placket is the back of the dress. The smocking was done by hand, and was much less time consuming or painful than I had anticipated.
The dress is hemmed with a double row of circular ruffles. It's really long for a new (ish) baby. But non crawlers can wear long dresses. Once babies begin to crawl, long dresses are a big bother. I'm hoping that this dress can be worn this summer, and next summer as well once Tabitha begins to walk.
