baby warhol dress

warholdress

Why did I wait so long to make one of these (I think I say that a lot to myself)?  I even had the pattern pieces printed out and taped together the same day when Dana posted it. 

I love how it came together so quickly.  A couple of recycled t-shirts and there you have it!  This is the 6-12 month version for my friends’ new baby girl.  They love music and so I thought this was a very fitting choice.  I didn’t even serge any of the edges either, gotta love knits! 

Wish I could’ve tried it on an actual baby, they make everything look so much cuter.  I cannot wait to make more for my girls, since they just loved it when they saw it hanging next to my sewing table yesterday morning.

I’m also really excited because today I’m headed up to the cities (that is the Minneapolis/St. Paul area in MN for all you non-midwestern folks) sans children.  Wahoo!  Haven’t had a shopping trip like that for a long time.  I’m planning on going here, and here, and here

  10. I’ve been eyeing the Warhol Dress for a while, but haven’t gotten to it yet. Love the way it turned out.

    I went to the Mall of America when I was a kid, and all I remember is being amazed at the fact that there was a roller coaster indoors. Hope you have a great time!

    So cute! I love the fabric. Have fun shopping! Did I ever tell you that I went to college in St. Paul for one year? I couldn’t cope with the endless winter… even having grown up in Chicago!! I’m a wuss- even more so now.

    So, so, so awesome. I love the print on the fabric and the pink/gray color combo. Everything about it rocks!

    Love the dress! It’s such a small world. Today I went *down* to the cities. I visited with friends at Pizza Luce and shopped at The Wedge. Didn’t make it out to the MOA … figured that could wait for another time.

  18. Cute dress! I’m gonna’ try that one for Audrey. Hey we were in the “cities” today too! Only a few miles from MOA helping my DIL with American Cancer Society yard sale. Hope you had a great shopping trip.

  19. Love the t-shirt you chose–it’s adorable. Have a great time shopping!!!
