summer vacation dress for my noodlehead

6.22.2010

Here's the first of the girls' wardrobe for this summer.  I couldn't resist!  I've been collecting fabrics here and there for things I wanted to make for them, but am just now getting to sew them up. 




This pattern is really great, I love how Dana gives you so many options and different variations on this dress, plus the shortie (can't wait to try that one out). 


We're ready for summer, bring on the clothes...

Natalie loves her new dress, it's so HER!!!

  2. I'm CRAZY about Willow. I've been trying to find a good excuse to buy it. It looks great as apparel fabric. The dress is so cute.
