Janey Jump Around Owls

A little gift for a baby shower I'm attending tonight.

Very quick to sew up. It's the free* Janey Jump Around Dress by peek-a-boo pattern shop.

Pattern: Janey Jump Around Dress
Fabric: Owls and coordinating cotton interlock from Joann's
Size: 6 months
Mods: The neckline trim seemed too wide at the pattern's measurement of 3" so I cut it down to 2" wide instead. Also made the cuffs in the coordinate and an inch less wide than the pattern's 4".

The buttons are some pretty sparkly ones from a "vintage" 3lb bag I bought at Michael's years ago. Love having random buttons on hand for projects! I used a twin stretch needle for the topstitching and hem with wooly nylon in the bobbin. I guess I'll see if Fynnley and her mama like it tonight!
