SEW MUCH FUN

Remember my last post about me going to Christmas Village? Well, my daughter called that morning and was unable to go. My sweet husband offered to go with me but I KNEW he would be miserable and I would be trying to rush and it wasn't worth it. So instead of Christmas Village I went to my favorite place to shop for Children's fabric (The Smocking Bird in Homewood) and bought enough fabric to make several outfits for the girls. This is the first that I made and love that it's reversible so they actually have two dresses in one. My oldest granddaughter is too old for this style dress so I am going to attempt to make her a skirt from this fabric to match.
This is the other side. The lighting doesn't show the exact color but it's the best I could do. It's a very light blue with brown designs.


I also bought the cutest pants pattern and there was enough fabric left to make a pair of pants for Emma. I love the ruffle at the bottom!



I really don't think she will wear the "dress" over the pants but it looks cute in the picture. I'm going to applique a design on a white shirt using the fabric from the ruffle. I can't wait to show you the other fabric I bought and the finished outfits. I had SEW much fun making these until missing Christmas Village wasn't so bad!!

Hi Sue -

Those are so cute outfits for your girls! I love the ruffles, too. Enjoy it while you can, you know these girls wanna start dressing themselves earlier than ever now.

Ever do any smocking? I used to do it all the time for my babies when they were young. I saved all their outfits thinking that maybe someday their kids might wear them. Who knows!
