Newborn Geranium Dresses

There isn’t much to say about these Geranium Dresses. Their cuteness renders me speechless and when I imagine my soon-to-be little lady wearing them I’m utterly verklempt.

I love this pattern, the newborn version of the Geranium Dress by Made by Rae. The construction is quality and clever, and the pattern is super simple and quick to sew. I taped my pattern pieces, transferred them to wax paper (per my usual), cut all my fabric, and sewed both of these dresses during my open sew time at Sewtopia a couple weeks ago. The only thing I had to do after the retreat was add my snaps (which I’m very glad I chose over buttons). Enjoy this sweetness:

I wish I added small objects to these pictures for scale because the dresses are TEENY. And, yes, I know: newborn dresses aren’t practical. I do not care. Even if she wears each of these ONE TIME it will have been worth it–they brought me so much joy and excitement to make. They likewise brought joy and delighted giggles to pretty much every woman who encountered them at Sewtopia. Priceless.
