Serena Baby Dress

I had been looking for a simple jumper to make for Iris for awhile.  Something that could be worn over a long-sleeved shirt and pants in the winter... or worn alone when it starts to heat up around here.  It couldn't be too long.  Iris is already rather proficient at the army crawl.  Full speed crawling is likely only a week or two away.   Tunic length would be just right.

After some searching, I landed on the Serena Baby Dress pattern on Etsy.  It sewed up quickly (maybe an hour from start to finish?).

And the best part?  It's reversible.

For this project, I used a half a yard each of Birch Fabrics Circa 52 in Woodland Party and Tree Stripes Sun.

It's exactly what I had envisioned.

Maybe I'm projecting (ahem) but I think Iris likes it, too.


  1. Great job and love the prints you chose! So glad you liked my pattern and would LOVE if you linked this up to my Craftastic Monday link party:)

  2. that's gorgeous! i love those fabrics, and everything is better when it's reversible, in my opinion :)

  3. Your work is always so very beautiful. I just love the fabrics that you choose.

    Love your new blog title as well. :)

    Thanks for your recent comment about the bags for foster children. We feel grateful to finally be serving in some way. Hopingbto deepen the relationship between our church and the home.
