I’ve recently created this adorable BurdaStyle Pleated Baby Dress by BurdaStyle for a friend who just found out they’re having a baby girl. I created the two different matching fabric’s on Spoon Flower, which you can purchase on my online Sixteen Stitches Spoon Flower shop.
The pattern came with a few different alternatives such as cap sleeves, full sleeves and even a different back. I decided to try both sleeve versions making one dress longer than the other.
From the time it took me to cut the paper pattern, sew it up and then hand-stitch the edging it was a total of 2.5 hours for both dresses. I used snaps for the buttons since they’re not only easy to install on your garments, they’re also perfect for children and babies. Overall it’s the perfect little baby dress and the design itself it just so cute!
After making these I went and bought a few more of their baby patterns, since they were so easy and adorable. I plan on making a matching BurdaStyle reversible hat in the same fabric next.
If you haven’t tried BurdaStyle patterns I highly recommend them. There is a bit to working out the sizing, instructions and piecing the patterns together but once you get your head around it’s totally worth it and very rewarding when you end up with garments like this.
Happy Sewing! Erin xx
