Parade Dresses

Bought this pattern from Aesthetic Nest to make the sleeves for the lemon birthday dress.  Finally got around to making the flutter dresses with it.  Love how they turned out.  Big one is maxi length and probably needs some kind of inner closure as it opens a bit too much in the back, but super cute regardless.

Super Tote

I've been eying noodlehead patterns for awhile, but fell in love with the new super tote pattern.  I made my first one as a gift for my daughter's speech therapy.  Fun tote with IKEA fabrics on the exterior. Ran out of time to get nice photos, but here it is!  I think the gusset is my fav feature!

Popover Sundresses

Found this IKEA fabric for a steal last time I was there.  Not sure if these are sundresses or more appropriate as nightgowns as the fabric is a bit sheer.  I kind of fussy cut so the bigger/brighter colors were in front...but super cute for yard play regardless.  I used the Oliver + S free popover dress pattern and it came out really cute.  I had to size up for my eldest and ended up just pleating the first dress and giving it to younger sis (which is why her's is longer).

Peasant dress

Needed some longer dresses for this season; just another peasant dress , but love how this one came out...and pretty excited to use up some stash materials. Had this awesome soft chambray I'd gotten from the remnant bin at JoAnns, and the florals were from a quilt store grab bag my daughter grabbed a few years ago.  My favorite is the mini pink rick-rack at the bottom and pocket's vintage from some sewing supplies that came in a sewing box my mom gave me--all from my great-grandma.  Super sweet.
