Baby jungle princess

My tiny contribution to Jungle January, over at Pretty Grievances – a dress for my baby niece.

This is McCalls 5416 and it’s a grrreat (sorry) pattern.  This dress can be made shorter, as a top, and there is also a pattern for shorts.

The fabric is needlecord, left over from another project.  So soft and cosy, and washes well too.  The facings are a tiny remnant of Cath Kidston cotton.  Vintage buttons from the stash.

It won’t fit her for a few months, so no pics of her in it yet.  Her mummy is very excited about this dress though, so I’m sure there will be some!

Updated – she wore it on her first birthday!
