Just in case I have trouble meeting my 30 goal. I'm counting these as #2-5 in my goal.
I went shopping with my sister the weekend before Easter to the fabric store. She was really excited that I might make Easter dresses for her daughters and mine, especially since she is trying to save her $ to go to Sweden. I said I'd make pillowcase dresses because from what I had scene on the web, they didn't look too hard. She found a pattern for them (which I didn't need, but bought to make sure I had sizing right) and asked if I could make them with the band around the bottom. It looked super cute, but I didn't consider how much extra time a little band around the bottom would be.
Overall, they didn't turn out perfectly, but they are really cute and who is going to snatch the dress off the little girl and turn it inside out to see how crooked some of my seems are?
Here's Roo in hers. Please ignore her shoes. I had bought her some cute hot pink Chuck Taylors to wear with the dress, but her feet were too wide for em.
Here are Roo and my nieces and nephews. Roo and her cousin B are both 20 months-ish. Then the girls are 4, 6 and 8 and my oldest nephew is 12. People always tease my sister that she missed a kid.
My sister noted how I made them all the same length. I think she was trying to be nice. It did work out well though that the littler girls are above their knees b/c they would have ripped them right out otherwise.
