Cheery and checked, gingham is a timeless fabric that offers many delights. From summer picnic tablecloths to baby rompers, it has an enduring appeal. During the summer that my new niece, Ruby, was to be born, an idea of stitching matching dresses for Hope, Grace, and Ruby all in classic red gingham check came to life.
The Tatum Dress from Sew Sweet Patterns was my choice for a breezy summer baby dress.
The pattern was simple, despite a few hiccups, and they sewed up quickly. Soon, I had 3 nearly identical dresses, which were then shipped off to Idaho in time for Ruby’s baby shower.
Faith was thrilled ! Ruby was born in August and until January wasn’t big enough to fit into her dress. But now…
She’s a big girl !
Hope, Ruby, and their cousin Grace loved modeling their matching dresses ─ even in the cold Idaho winter.
Aren’t they precious ?!
Gingham: the fabric that never goes out of style and is versatile for the young and old. That makes me wonder… maybe I should make a gingham dress someday !
Toi, Toi, Toi,
Thank you for allowing me to use these beautiful pictures of your children, Faith and Angel !
