Picture day & New dresses

Today is picture day at school for the girls and I wanted them to wear the dresses I made for them.

One problem.

Big Sister's dress still lacked button holes and I lacked the equipment to complete them.

What's a girl to do?

Go to Target, buy a sewing machine, carefully note how it was packaged, sew the button hole, repackage the machine and return the thing the next day. Maybe not the most correct thing to do, but sometimes you just have to get things done!! (And Jenny, thanks for you're offer and I may take you up on it sometime between now and when I get my new machine, but I just didn't have time to make it to your house!!)


Turned out pretty cute! I've made a few adjustments from the last dress and we'll give this one a few wears before I call the design complete.


I made the skirt even fuller, because really, there is no such thing as a too-full skirt. As a child I was a firm believer that dresses were for twirling and if the skirt didn't fly up properly then the dress was pretty worthless. So basically, I'm trying to fulfill my childhood dreams of the perfect dress. Hopefully, the Sisters and little girls everywhere will appreciate my efforts!!

  1. OMG! I would have totally done the SAME thing! Matter of fact I do that kind of thing all the time. Those dress are beautiful! You have such an eye for coordinating fabrics. I would never see those fabrics and say "those would make a beautiful dress!"
    Can't wait to see the pics!
