Jocelyn had the very very sweetest summer dresses the year she was two. She had some pretty cute ones this past summer as well, but when I went through her old dresses from the summer before and had to put (most of) them away, I coudl have cried. My baby! So big!

Well I keep thinking about those sweet dresses. Woven, not knit, so perfect for sewing with. I’ve had the thought in the back of my mind for a while, each time I make a little something, I think, “I could get X dress and use that to make this..” but never do. They would be sweet, but it’s like that favorite fabric that you love so much you don’t want to cut it up. I need to think of something WORTHY to make with my baby’s sundresses.

I did however, cut one to make Ethan’s bunny dress. Look familiar?

adventurous big footed bunny

It’s from the dress up there with the soccer ball.

So now, I am trying to think of some other uses that would be worthy of these sweet little fabrics.

Maybe a quilt?

Maybe I should sit on it a while and make something when she’s a little older and can really appreciate it. (And build up the dress stash.)

    I am a lurker and very rarely comment but… I would keep saving with the intention of making a larger quilt for her bed when she is a teenager. These are such cute dresses and they look like great fabric. It would be a shame not to do SOMETHING with them. But I know how it is about not wanting to ruin them or lose them! LOL
