Show and Tell #1: I started by making a different version of the typical pillowcase dress. This one is the "Sew Flouncy" tiered pillowcase dress. I don't enjoy gathering, but I do like the look.
I love the twirl power of this dress, and my daughter liked it too. There was a little moment where she told me that she loved the dress, but she didn't want anybody to see it. I don't attempt to understand the mind of a spirited, four year old girl. However, I was thankful when she happily put the dress on and actually seemed to enjoy wearing it. Whew...
Show and Tell #2: Next up is an adorable baby romper that I made for my youngest. Sophie is at that wonderful age where I can put anything on her and she is happy. I need to take advantage of this time because, judging form my other girls, it won't last!
This little romper pattern did not include the bow embellishment, but it definitely adds a touch of girliness,which we love around here! I made the 6-12 month size for my baby, which she wears, but it will need to be adjusted for next time because I found it a bit short in the stride. You can find the pattern here. I also used larger leg holes... My girl has chunky thighs, and I can't stand for elastic to leave red marks on her. I overestimated, however, and she ended up with looser legs that looked more like capris. It turned out very cute and comfy on her though!
