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.  There’s been a ton of patterns in this basic style put out for baby girls from about the 40s to the 90s.
