How I'm Already Spoiling My First Niece





My sister is due to have her first baby in June, about 2.5 weeks before I expect to be induced to have Kate. She is having a little girl too and I sewed this blessing dress for her. (In our faith a baby blessing is comparable to but different than a christening.)

I can only take credit for execution, the design is all Jessica's. Cute, huh? Almost made me jealous. But I'm content to sew only one blessing dress during this pregnancy and let Kate wear the same one I made for Claire. I mean, I'm too lazy to sew elastic onto a flat sheet, so do you really think I'm up for a SECOND baby dress???

That is a cute dress. you are very talented! And LOL,you really should sew the elastic on your sheets... It is hilarious to see that I am not the only one who will make something adorable and yet avoid the useful sewing projects. I did just find a flat sheet waiting for it's transformation into a fitted on my sewing table under a pile of other projects I would rather do. I think that sheet will be there for a while longer.
