Homemade kids clothes swap

On TNN we did a Homemade kids clothes swap. I was given 2 wee girls to sew for. One being very little - only 4 months old and one being 18 months. I love sewing girls clothes for a change from the boys clothes I always seem to be sewing. So I knew I would have fun with this one.
My swaps have been sent off but not quite received and I know they will be received in the next day or so. So lets hope the recipients don't look here.
For the 4 month old girl i made a very cute and teeny tiny little dress from 2 different lots of corduroy. This is a similar pattern to the ones I shared about a couple of months ago. I changed a few bits and pieces with the pattern.

I used cute little flower snaps for the closures.
I ran one corduroy sideways and one up and down for something a bit different.

For the 18 month old girl I made a wee Merino Tunic from a pattern I made up. I kinda went along the same lines as the Charlie tunic but obviously without sleeves, but I liked the way the quilting cotton was a feature.
If I had girls I would have struggled to give these away - they are just soo lovely... Just as well we don't have girls eh....
