I bought my first online pattern the other day. The Sweet Little Dress is all over the internet, and it's so incredibly cute. I'm hoping the girls love it, and I can make it in a variety of styles. They both love dresses! I thought it would be fun to use this star fabric that my mom gave me awhile back. I had multiple yards of the red, but only about a yard of the white, so I made the smaller one in that, with the coordinating sleeves in red. This is a 2T size and a 7 size, for my 3 and 6 year olds. The 2T is a titch short, but plenty wide (she's crazy petite) and the 7 fits my oldest perfectly. The first one took me awhile, but the second one came together pretty rapidly. I love how the elastic makes the sleeves and neck look so cute! I'm excited to use some other fabrics to make more for summer, and to experiment with some alterations.
I'm a SAHM with two beautiful little girls, an awesome husband, two cats, and a house we're slowing making into our dream home.
I love to play with photos and save our memories, and I am fascinated with cutting pieces of fabric and creating something useful and beautiful. Handmade makes me happy.
