The Geranium Dress

After making this little baby quilt, I had half of the panel print leftover. Of course it would make the perfect skirt, but I wanted to try my hand at making a dress for my daughter with it. I decided on the Geranium Dress from Made by Rae. I made a size 4T for my little girl which ended up being fairly true to size. She generally wears a 4 or 5. It's slightly large on her, and I hope it lasts her a while.

The skirt is slightly less gathered than the pattern suggests simply because I didn't have enough fabric. It still worked out just fine.

 My daughter likes longer dresses so I added a wide hem in Pure Elements Verve Violet. It coordinates perfectly with the Wee Wander fabric.

I struggled a bit on the neckline, but the scallop neck adds such cute detail.

The pattern was well written and easy to follow. I bought the bundle of both size sets. Hopefully I'll be making one of two more of these dresses in the future!


  1. Your dress is perfect! I need to try this pattern when my little girl gets a bit older.

  2. I just love it! I don't think I have the sewing skills to make this (as I am basically a self-taught quilter) but I admire it greatly! )

  3. have been catching up on my blog reading. just love what you have been doing lately. The dress and bag are awesome.

  4. The dress turned out so pretty. I'm sure your daughter will love wearing it!

  5. Such a cute idea and your daughter will love it. Hope to see a picture of her wearing it.
