Aquamarine Newborn Baby Dress

Last summer, we came across a sweet aquamarine plumeti that we couldn’t resist. It was not the best fabric (100% cotton but so thin that it wrinkles just by looking at it) but the color was so sweet and in vogue that summer, that we went for it! Well, now that baby bird #3 is on her way (and about to get here by the way), we set off to sew a matching newborn dress. And this was the result!

Mint Plumeti Newborn Dress SS15

Truth to be told, we were, as often, “inspired”  by Nanos SS15, but how to resist their collections? Anyhow, when we were putting it together, we were super hesitant about whether or not to add a silk ribbon on the flutter sleeves. It did seem a bit much but it was easier to put it together. So we set up a pool on Instagram (@casycoso) and the result was unanimous, WITHOUT!

Valencienne Trimmed Neckline
Sweet or Oversweetened?

Luckily, we had enough left over scraps to make the diaper cover and a baby cap. For this last two, we did add the ribbon. The diaper cover back is romantically trimmed with Plumeti and Valencienne lace. For the baby cap, just some embroidered lace with the silk ribbon.

Modestly In Love...truly!

Here is front and back, let us know if you would need any other detail shots or measurements! 

P.S. Fair Warning! we found Ultra Rich Koral Plumeti fabric which goes so espectacularly with the Peppered Liberty of London Fabric I have been dieing to use for some time, something is soon as the already shop for fabric gets in the mail!
