I have found that sewing makes me happy. Picking out the fabric and the patterns totally relaxes me. And believe me, I need something that relaxes me!
When I make her "the next batch" I need to adjust the pattern just a bit so that they will fit her better. But, overall, I am quite pleased with how the dresses turned out. They aren't perfect, but I'm ok with that (and so is Ella!).
Huge thank you's to my wonderful husband for watching the little ones while I finished these dresses.
This dress is a little big on her right now, but hopefully it will fit when summer comes along. I also made another dress just like this for one of my friends little girls.
For this dress I adjusted the pattern so that it will (hopefully) fit Ella this summer. I just love this fabric.
I can't wait for summer! Ella is going to look so cute in this dress!
I love this pattern. The jumper is so adorable and it's easy! I love easy!
Can you tell I like bright colors? I don't know why, but I am just drawn to bright colors. I guess I will never misplace Ella Grace as long as she is in bright colors! And believe me, she is so quick it would be easy to misplace her!
I hope to make her some more outfits this week, using different patterns. My wonderful mommy is coming down tomorrow so hopefully she can help me with some of the patterns that I don't know how to do. I really want to make Ella a cute little red and white polka dot shorts outfit. I'll post pics when I get it done.
