Which means some Grandma sewing. I found a free dress pattern on line made by Rae Hoekstra. You can get the pattern for free at https://shop.made-by-rae.com/collections/childrens-patterns-free/products/itty-bitty-baby-dressOur little darling is only 4#, so I made the adjustment above to her pattern. For the skirt I used a 30" strip for a slightly less full skirt. I considered making the skirt shorter, but decided to leave it long. I also used a flat feld seam rather than the instruction's traditional seam treatment.
A slightly different side seam treatment so all the raw edges are hidden.
Since I am using Batik, it's nearly impossible to tell one side from the other, so I just added a band on the lower edge as a finish.
