TGIFF - Little Geranium Dress

Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday being hosted here in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada.  TGIFF is a great chance to showcase your finishes from this week and to see what other great projects have been created.



My new one-month old niece is tiny and doesn't have any cute clothes because everyone bought larger sizes.  So I thought I'd try making a dress.  The Little Geranium Dress is a free pattern by Made by Rae.  I got stumped after I got to this point.  But once Jenn @ A Quarter Inch From the Edge showed me what to do, it all made sense.


And voilà...a finished dress.


It's hard to photograph a dress without a model, so I have a book inside it holding it up.  I can't imagine what she would need pockets for at this young age, but they are so cute.


Here's the back view.  I need to match the thread better next time.

Now it's time for you to link up your finishes.  Link up your blog post showing off your finished project using the linkup below.  Don't forget to visit a few blogs to spread some quilty love and encouragement.  Please include a link and/or the TGIFF button in your blog post so your followers can also view all the great finishes.

  10. So adorable. I'm glad you pushed ahead with the directions and completed the dress because it really is too cute. I hope that someone takes a photo of her wearing the dress. The pockets are fun, but yeah, just for decoration. Give her a few months and who knows what would go into pockets!!
