newborn formal dress

A friend recently asked me to make a semi fancy dress for her newborn.  They had a wedding to attend and couldn't find anything appropriate for the baby.   I used this tutorial for the bodice of the dress, but I altered the straps to snap together instead of tie in a bow.  The flowers are satin circles I sewed together and seared (to prevent fraying).  The skirt of the dress is a layer of satin fabric with a layer of matching chiffon on top.   I made a matching diaper cover using this tutorial
