What We’re Working On -Vintage Inspired Baby!

I was itching to do up a cute, rockabilly-inspired dress for my baby daughter, and this What’s Cookin’? by RJR fabric definitely fit the bill!

I used a vintage pattern, Style 3271, however this type of baby dress really is the quintessential baby dress. ┬áThere’s been a ton of patterns in this basic style put out for baby girls from about the 40s to the 90s.

What We’re Working On – Retro Baby

Well, the snow has finally melted here, and spring has really sprung. It was time to whip up some spring-y/summer-y wear for my daughter.


The tunic top/dress is made from the Michael Miller – Tammis Keefe Contented Cats in Mustard. This fabric is a lovely linen/cotton blend and is cool for the spring/summer. I didn’t use a pattern for this, it’s just a basic pillowcase dress, there’s a million tutorials out there for them. The pants are made from the Siena Cloth in cream. This is a nice, light bottom weight, perfect for warmer days. The pants were just made from a basic elastic waist baby pants pattern. The top is long enough that it can be worn as a dress on it’s own, as well!

As an added note, the pillows on the couch were made from Alexander Henry’s Nicoles Prints – Tiki Lounge and Michael Miller – Dumb Dot in Avocado (for the piping)
