I know I'm behind but I had to show you this...

A few weeks ago, I saw this dress on Jenny's blog. I LOVED it and wanted to make one for each of my girls. So I emailed her, got the pattern and Saturday I sewed for the first time for myself since Christmas (I have been helping the girls on a couple of 4-H projects but nothing for me.)

I picked out some nice fabric to make my own dresses for the girls but decided to make a sample dress first to see if I would need to adjust them at all and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on the samples. So the other day, my girls found some wild fabric at Walmart- 3 different prints- red, black and white. It was cheap so I bought enough to make them each one. I made them yesterday! I LOVE this pattern and I think the dresses turned out pretty cute too,especially when worn by  my sweet girls:)
The pattern is Kyoko by Patty Young, Modkids.
Thanks Jenny for the info:) Now I am ready to make the girls a couple more... after I finish my pillow and cross blocks!

ps... just for the record, my girls weren't freezing while taking these pictures:)  Yes there is snow on the ground but it was 70 degrees here today:) By this evening, all our snow was gone!

Adorable girls - dresses too are adorable!
Weather this time of year is so flexible - Tuesday my car couldn't make it to work through deep snow, Yesterday was near 70 and nothing but a few puddles!
Happy Valentines!
