Happy Birthday Lucy!

Our beautiful little Lucy turned 3 last week!  I made both Lucy and her new doll seersucker dresses to celebrate.

Because summer is almost over I had a little trouble finding some easy care seersucker but finally found this pretty blue to match Lucy's eyes!  I used New Look pattern #6884 and made absolutely no changes!  What a surprise!  The dress was simple and went together beautifully.  The only thing I would change if I were to make it again would be to cut the sleeves on the fold and make a casing for the elastic rather than using seam binding.  Finally, I designed a matching doll dress.  What fun!!

For pictures of this dress in action, here you go!

I'm Back

I have been neglecting my blog while vacationing and entertaining family and friends.  It has been a very nice summer, but now it's time to get my mind back into serious work mode!  I have been sneaking in some fun sewing.  Here's our little Ellie's birthday dress.

 Sorry, I know the picture is horrible!

I started with New Look Pattern # 6958 then changed the direction of the pleats and add some fabric trim.
