A sweet little toddler dress & bloomers

So my new favourite book, Simple Sewing for Baby by Lotta Jansdotter, is just full of ideas for baby projects.  So for our niece's 1st birthday, I thought this little dress set with bloomers would be perfect.

I've made these little dresses before so I have to admit that I didn't really follow Lotta's pattern as I just did it from memory.  But I did try to follow the steps for the bloomers although next time I have a few better ideas on how to go about them.

The little toy is just the cutest & attached with ribbon to the pocket! I hope it washes ok.

I also used one of the fimo buttons I made which goes quite nicely.

I've just wrapped it up & off now to pop it in the post....now let's hope it gets to her, we don't seem to have much luck sending them things.
