Itch to Stitch: 12 months, 12 dresses COMPLETED!


Wouldn't it be great to commit to making one thing a month? said a friend at  Heart to Homestead . Little did Sue know that I would take the challenge and actually complete it. It's really not a lofty goal, I promise.  Just making a little time for that which you want to do every month is totally do-able if you're interested!  Just working 15 minutes here and there for a whole month and you'll end up with a finished product in no time.  It's easy to let life, family, other hobbies and work get in the way, but it doesn't have to be the case if you wiggle a little time here and there.

I'm super excited how many homemade dresses my little girl has now. She had a couple I made before this challenge, but now she has even more!  I love making little girl dresses, as they are forgiving and will fit for some time, and they can turn into a shirt later on.  All of these dresses were made from patterns I was gifted or bought at the thrift store.  There's only one dress that I bought the fabric new-the rest are either upcycled (many from wool) or from fabric from a thrift store.  My little girl has a bigger wardrobe now and it cost next to nothing. 

Anyway, here's the challenge and the link to all the dresses.

Dress one: Here.
Dress two: Here.
Dress three: Here
Dress four: Here.
Dress five: Here.
Dress six: Here.
Dress seven: Here.
Dress eight: Here.
Dress 9
Dress 10
Dress 11
Dress 12

And here they are, all 12 of them!

Dress 1, 2, 3, 4
 Dress 5, 6, 7, 8

Dress 9, 10, 11, 12
 I think it's pretty neat to watch her grow. 12 dresses, 12 months...she's growing up in mama mades.

12 months, 12 completed projects.  Now this project is complete, I ponder another 12 month project.  What should I commit doing every month for the next year?  What would you pick?


  1. Oh my. How fabulous that you are able to make your baby's clothes for her. One is cuter than the next...I'll bet she'll be a great seamstress too!

  2. Love, love, love all her Mama Made dresses! So sweet to watch her grow in them!
