Baby’s bubble dress tutorial

by bosssanders on April 15, 2010 with 1 comment


For Aurora, I wanted a bubble dress but was running out of fabric…so I improvised!  Here’s my “baby’s bubble dress.”

It’s basically 2 pieces.  The first piece, the chest piece, was a rectangle (see the other tutorial for Lorelei’s bubble dress) but instead of being 4 1/2 inches, I made it 9 inches wide. Then, I sewed it in half just like before.  The difference, however, is that instead of arm straps, I just added some elastic on top.

The body piece was made in exactly the same fashion as Lorelei’s dress.  Just, different measurements to fit the baby.

I might add some ribbon to the front for a halter strap, but I’m not sure if I’m down with the potential CHOKING HAZARD!  So, we’ll see.  I may add SOMETHING to just kind of dress it up later, or I may wait till she is big enough to wear it as a shirt and not try to eat everything.   I can tell you, though, this is the perfect outfit for quick changes!
