I made a Geranium Dress ... well a mini one anyway!

So, on lots of the blogs I follow, there has been a huge interest in the Washi Dress by Rae of Made By Rae.  This is a Mummy dress, rather than a munchkin dress.  I think it's cute, and Rae now sells patterns for it.  I've been pondering it, not sure if the style would suit me, or if I would even be brave enough to try making something for myself, but I love how there's lots of variations available with the pattern from a top to a maxi dress to added sleeves and lots more.  

Anyway, recently Rae released a free pattern online for a Little Geranium Dress, which is basically the baby version of the Washi dress.  I couldn't resist giving it a try, and here's how it turned out.  
Now this is a small pattern, but Hannah's pretty small, so it fits her and I cut it off a bit shorter so it's actually a top rather than a dress ... too cute, huh! (oh, and after three Somewhere Over the Rainbow tops, and this little Geranium Dress, I think I'll retire what's left of this fabric!  I've had enough of it now ... too much of a good thing, and all that!)
So, now I'm really tempted to give the Washi a try for me.  We'll see if I can find the perfect fabric, and enough guts to give it a go.

Oh, and I couldn't resist showing this little back view of Hannah ... she's finally starting to grow some hair!!!!
