For a Special Little Girl

My husband phyiscal therpist has little girl that comes with him to visit us.  She is delightful! She helps me walk the dogs and tells me all about being 6 years old. I whipped up this little Apron Dress for her for Christmas she loved Juliana's Mod Squad outfit. I had extra material so I changed it up making sure i did not add to much because she's all grown up in her words. I got this Idea from the Sew Beautiful Issue 131, The ultimmate Apron by Khristal Jouett. This dress is so ease my husband can make it!

Merry Christmas!

Here is the Christmas Dress I made for my new granddaughter! It was a run for the finish. I completed it at 11:45pm the nite of the 23rd and she wore it Christmas eve.  I made it with a Dupioni Cream Silk Fabric with Christmas Red Detail. I smocked the sleeves and was careful not to over do it since she a newborn.  I used a Peter Pan collar with red detailed embroidery. Simply and sweet! So here is Juliana and here 1st Christmas dress!

Sewing Room Mess

I running around with my head cut off trying to finish one project and start another that has to be completed by Thrusday morning. I spent time trying to get organized and have an area the I could pin and cut out patterns without it killing my back. This is what i came up with. I had an old small kitchen table that was in the way. I can store stuff underneth and free up space. One day I dream of a Sewing rooms with all the right Fixin's!

These are my new Dress Labels and I love them there so cute!

Just in time for Christmas my Mod Squad 2 pc set for my grandbaby Juliana.  I can picture her in it now.  I got this Idea from the Sew Beautiful Issue 131, The ultimmate Apron by Khristal Jouett. This was a fun outfit to make.  I used Keri Mecca's book Sewing with Whimsy to add alittle fun.  She thinks outside of the box making children clothes fun and finished.  I love braiding ric rack and making the flowers, so much I added them to the bottom of the Capri pants.  This will be a cool outfit for the hot summers.
