For Iris's first Halloween I dressed her up as Lambie, her lamb blankie that is also her best friend.  She clutches and carries him around all day (see top two photos).  It's very dear.  I designed the hat pattern myself, using Blue Sky Alpacas Brushed Suri.  (If anyone's interested please let me know, and I'll post the pattern here.)  For the blanket part of the costume I used Simplicity pattern 1734.  Such a cute pattern for a baby poncho!  I think she'll wear it often as a coat this fall, not just for Halloween.  I lined it with a beautiful Nani Iro double gauze.  Underneath the poncho I dressed her in a wool onesie and leggings from H&M.  Baby long johns!  The shoes are baby Padraigs.

Jenny, she is so precious and adorable. I so look forward to every time you blog now and show us something you have made for baby Iris. I had a little girl, whom we call Evie (Genevieve is her full name) about a week before Iris was born.

Thank you for sharing with us!!

Jenny, these photos are precious! Iris has such bright eyes, like her mama. You did a beautiful job with her poncho--she looks very proud. Eloise had the same moccasins when she was Iris's age and I loved them. Happy autumn!

What a darling idea, Jenny - and so simple and practical, too; all the pieces are functional and reusable as part of a winter wardrobe. So clever! (And so adorable, on your little Iris!)
