I made the twins new dresses!! I used the Flower Girl Dress pattern in the book, Weekend Sewing by Heather Ross.
I. Love. This. Pattern!!
I found this super cute Alexander Henry Farmdale fabric on sale at Joann's for under $5 a yard and completed both within days.
It actually only took several hours to complete the dresses but when I work in tiny pockets of stolen time... it takes a bit longer.
Weekend Sewing is a great book with loads of patterns that are simple enough even for me, who considers my sewing machine an archenemy at times.
Once I traced the pattern and got the instructions down
for the first one, the second dress was easy peasy!
I got so excited making dresses, I even made one for the girls' cousin, Katie!
Who doesn't love a $5 dress!?
Now there are three little girls with dresses that are just perfect for summertime twirling!
