dad's shirt - now her dress

4.15.2011


Happy Friday everyone!  I just got a workout vacuuming the entire house and thought I should sit down and share Natalie's shirt dress with you. 


And if you haven't already there still time to enter the Cloud 9 Fabric and my pattern giveaway.


Well, it's been super warm and sunny here, so it was a lot of fun getting some pics outdoors for a change.  It's so much fun taking pictures of Natalie, she's always moving always doing goofy things.  Just. Plain. Fun.


Just like Emily's shirt dress I used MADE's shirt dress tutorial.  I love the splash of color at the waistband!


Hope you all have a great weekend. I'll announce the fabric & pattern winners tomorrow morning.

  3. So pretty! I love the combo of gingham and that anthology fabric (one of my faves). And how does it get so warm there so quickly! Look at all of that lush green grass.

  14. That is so adorable! I love it. You're so good to sit down and blog after vacuuming the whole house. I would probably nap instead, but I'm going to blame that on pregnancy ;)

  15. I love this! I've got a very similar shirt that my husband decided he didn't want and I saved it for a project like this. You've inspired me to get it done. I think it will be sweet for my daughter to wear it on father's day among other times.
