New Summer Dresses
I finished these little dresses a while ago, but this morning was the first opportunity to take pictures with both little girls. And two little girls in new ummer dresses are certainly better than one. I picked up this piece of blue plaid seersucker fabric at the thrift store for $1 a few months ago. And it was just enough to make the two dresses. Which makes them just fifty cents a dress, not too bad! I made one for my niece for her first birthday, and had just enough fabric to make another for Creamie. And considering I took more than 100 photos this morning I am showing great restraint in only posting 12.
You can not imagine the things she stuffs in those pockets. We stopped at our favorite soup and sandwich spot for lunch and when we got in the car I realized that she had 9 little packages of crackers, a mini cup of tortilla strips and a chocolate covered strawberry, which she had thoughtfully wrapped in a napkin first all stuffed into her pocket. Along with the stray red pom pom, a spongebob party blower thing, two hairclips, a plastic pig and a toy train. I should have known something was up this morning when I put her dress on and she said “I need to find some stuff for my pockets.” She wasn’t kidding.
Sick of pictures, these two took off with a package of fruitsnacks, which is the bribe of choice around these parts. Seriously, they are so cute!
Creamie insisted that this giant spotlight was a TV and she was pretty frustrated that the remote was lost. VERY frustrated!
Little A has the prettiest blue eyes ever. Just like her mama’s. Creamie’s eyes used to be this same blue, (check this picture of her when she was 3 months old) but they have since changed.
She is most definitely going to be a green eyed girl. Just like her mama. And that makes me happy.
I have big plans to have a great weekend. I hope yours is wonderful too!
The pattern for these dresses is based on this pattern from Dana at MADE. (I added the sleeves.)
