Recent Sewing Projects

Rachel and Sarah had been asking for nighties. Lindsay had some muslin in my stash and I have the most adorable regency pattern for girls. I decided to use the pattern but leave the sleeves off. Perfect summer nightie but a bonus, as well. It it a perfect full slip!


I put soft pink buttons on Rachel's and brighter pink on Sarah's. That one is not shown here because it is in the wash!

See the sweet lines of the back? I love this pattern!

Sorry I don't have a close up of this skirt - you can click on it to enlarge it. It was a bit of fabric that was left over from a tote bag project. The girls are so tiny I could use this bit of fabric -the skirt has ONE seam in the back! and they both fit in it...
This is a close up of Sarah's pink butterfly skirt! It is made of a cute seersucker fabric from JoAnne's.

Here they are posing together...

This is a close up of Rachel's skirt - she wanted a long skirt like Emily has. If you remember the post I did about Sarah's skirt? The young girlies look up to the older girlies and love to dress like them!
This is Rachel's new fun thing in the house - climbing the hallway!
I will be doing some alterations for my mom tomorrow - but I intend to work on at least one apron!
