The fabric has been in my stash for I don't know how many years. Let's just say many. It is a light-weight cotton knit that has a laced pattern through it. I've been reluctant to cut into this fabric for far too long and it is long time coming that I made something out of it.
I broke the current gender rules in making this little blue dress. I did say current. Back in the early 20th century, blue was perceived as "more delicate and dainty" and "prettier for girls" (Maglaty 1). To make this look more current, I did add some pink in a floral trim.
The trim has pink for the current notion of gender identification. It has been part of my stash for many moons. The wooden spool of light blue 100% cotton thread that I used has been in my stash for over three decades and it was a perfect match.
The pattern, Burda 9752, is perfect and so adorable. It came together without any issues. It is a multi-sized pattern and includes sizes 1, 3, 6, 9 and 12 months. If you are in the market for an infant pattern, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one.
