A new dress for the little mud kitten

I made this little dress for a girlfriend of mine from high school. Her son plays baseball for a team called the Mud Cat's, so she wanted a baseball dress that said 'Mud Kitten'. This is what we came up with.

The pattern I used is New Look 6576. To make the color blocking I just traced off the size I needed and then added seam allowances to the strips and sewed those together before the side seams. It is fully lined so the little princess doesn't feel the embroidery. The little heart baseballs are from Planet Applique. I just merged two together, shrunk one a bit and rotated them. So cute.

Of course, I had to make her a bow to match.
I just love how this little dress came out. I need to make my kids some new baseball outfits as well.

These are too small. :(

They are getting so grown up..... sigh. sad.

Love the little dress, and the way you did the baseball hearts.
Those outfits don't look too small to me. They are so cute.
