DIY Baby Dress: The Aurthi


Back in December, I showcased some of my sewing projects at my work's annual Talent Show.  Surprisingly enough, my colleagues were very impressed with my work.  Pretty good for someone who has only been sewing for a year huh?

At the talent show, one of my colleagues asked if I could make a gift for a friend of hers who recently had a baby girl.  I sent her a few ideas, we discussed back and forth and then decided on this:



Cute huh?  I just love the owl fabric. 



 


Here is the view of the back:




As you can see this is a 1 piece dress, which is actually more of a pinafore since it doesn't close in the back.



 Another view of the back:

  

I used kam snaps for the closures.  These snaps are pretty much my favorite thing to use whenever I can.  So easy to put on and incredibly durable.  Just don't iron them... they melt... I learned that the hard way.

  


 


But wait, that's not all folks... This dress is fully reversible!!


Here's the other side:






Nothing better than a garment that can be worn in multiple ways, right?











The pattern I used for this dress is the Aurthi. Want a link to the pattern? Leave me a comment.  

I actually pattern tested this pattern before the designer released it and it is one of my all-time favorite patterns! 

It is really simple since it is only 2 pieces to sew together.  I'd definitely recommend this to a beginner seamstress because of it's simplicity, but also because the tutorial that comes along with the pattern is incredibly detailed and walks you through every step of the way.  There are also several design options included so the pattern has some nice versatility to it. 


 I also decided to make a matching bib to go along with the dress.  Here's a link to my previous post about how to make the bibs in case you missed it: DIY Baby Bibs



I'm really loving how these bibs are turning out. 



I just gave the finished item to my colleague today and she loved them.  Hopefully the new mama will love them as well!

  1. I love your owl fabric. So cute. I totally just finished a dress like this for my girl. The pattern I had was for 18 months. I had to make it bigger to fit her since she is almost 4 years old. I saw your project on pinterest and was like, "Oh my gosh, I just did this same thing!"
