Dress #5

Finally, the last dress!  You got a glimpse of the dress here last week.  Now for a closer look.

I used Kwik Sew   pattern #3921.  I added the ruffle at the neck, made the skirt all one fabric, and made a fabric tie to go around the waist.  After seeing the dress on Lucy, I probably should have put some little thread belt loops on the side to keep the bow in place!

Dress #4

 Dresses 4 and 5 are matching dresses I designed for Lucy and Darla.  Scott and Chelsea took these cute pictures of the girls.  

Not sure why I chose yellow and gray to make these dresses, but we think I might have been influenced by Scott and Chelsea's bedroom decor.  What do you think?

So here it is.  Dress # 4!

I started with McCalls pattern # 5791 and added the belt and ruffles.

Dress # 3

I just returned home from a wonderful relaxing week in Hawaii!  With the exception of checking out a Hawaiian Quilt store, I didn't think of sewing at all!  Now I'm home and thinking of nothing but sewing--prom is officially here!

I really love the  Lisette patterns for Simplicity, so I finally made one of them for Anna.  Dress # 3 is Simplicity #2064.  I fell in love with the pattern and found the exact fabric.  I think it turned out great.  Here it is:

Dress # 2

Here's dress # 2!  This dress was for our sweet little Ellie.  I used  Simplicity pattern # 2292 just like in the first dress.  I made this dress according to the pattern except I cut the front piece on the fold so there wouldn't be a seam through these cute little flowers!
