Snappy Toddler Dress

I made this cute little toddler dress for my cousin's little girl.
I used a cotton knit fabric and had never worked with it before. It was a little difficult to work with, but overall I was happy with the final product. I think it turned out cute!

and with a little long sleeve onesie underneath it's perfect for the cooler temps. :-)

Thank you to my friend, Kim, for posting the dress she made for her little girl and for being my inspiration when it comes to sewing projects. :-)

You can find the template and how-to by going to Prudent Baby.

When it came to using bias tape on the armholes I went to Sew Can Do and followed Cheryl's technique.

It was my cousin's daughter's 1st birthday and I made her a little card too.

And it was my first time making an envelope. I like!
