The ugly dogs Pretty Itty Bitty dress!

Rae from Made by Rae offers a free pattern on her [gorgeous] blog.

It's the first dress I made!

Now, for the chosen fabric, I feel like I have to explain myself:
My daugther LOVES it. She adores dogs. "Dog" was her first word. Even before saying "Papa".

When I dig it out of a box full of fabric my mom gave me, she hugged it and didn't want to let it go (until Papa took a cookie out of the cloche...)

so many dogs.....

So I decided to try the Itty Bitty pattern... My printer was out of ink so I drawn in freehand on a paper...

It was really easy to use, really fun to make! I wasn't stressed much about screwing it since the fabric isn't that pretty... But I think it turned well enough!

It's lined with white cotton from one of Papa's shirt and has a sort of petty coat as well. I've found a ribbon and sewn it there since I had no piping.

I'll surely try this pattern again with a fabric that I like!


  1. Oh, that's lovely! I'll have to try it for my girls!

  2. It's cute & fun! You're good sewer!
