Number 11 was born on Monday, April 27, but we don't have pictures of her yet. Josie May Cuadrado makes eleven nieces and nephews for Q and I. She weighed in at 7 pounds, 15 ounces and was 21 and 1/2 inches long. I heard she has lots of hair and is one adorable little girl. We can't wait to see pictures of her. I'm getting ready to send off a gift for her that I know her mom (my middle sister) will love.
I used Simplicity pattern #4243 to make this sleeveless dress and panties. This is the second time I've used this pattern and it's one of my favorites so far. I love the pleats on the front and the lace that trims the collar and hem. It's the perfect dainty dress for my new niece.
Here are the panties, as they're called in the pattern. It's very frilly with the lace on the bottom of each leg opening.
I used Butterick pattern #4898 to make a matching hair bow. It was my first time making one, and it was pretty easy to do.
