Summer Sewing

I loved making Blythe's dress a few months back, but I wasn't completely satisfied with how it came out. I wasn't disatisfied enough to remake it, she's only going to wear it one day, BUT I did take the opportunity to make a few more and practice some sewing skills with a few more friend's baby girls turning one soon. They are improving with practice, far from perfect, and I'm still going to leave the real dress making to the professionals. It's a really fun thing to be able to make for friends, and I loved experimenting with colors according to Mama's wishes, and party plans!
Kate's Dress
(Just like Blythe's, with a different color ribbon).

I flipped the hem up on each to show the fabric underneath. I love these dresses b/c there is a complete little dress underneath as well, it's all about the details!

Emme's Dress

Underneath is chocolate brown with pink dots.

Aubrey's Dress

Underneath is light pink, hot pink, and green stripes.

I can't wait to see these precious little ones celebrating their first birthday very soon. I have a few more sewing projects, but I need to ship them out before I share them. :O) I've since put the machine up, and now my focus is scrapbooking!

If we have a girl I am already putting in my request for one of these adorable dresses. Now you need to learn how to make an outfit/overall version for little boys.

You are certainly on the list for a dress, or a john-john with your baby's name on it. ;o) Once Baby T has a name, and a gender, the product will soon follow!
