Wardrobe Additions

My girls were seriously needing some dresses and new church clothes, but our budget is tight. So, I dug out this navy material that was supposed to be Christmas dresses 3 years ago. The results? Two beautiful girls with nice dresses.

Then, I figured they needed more, so I whipped up these skirts and found the shirts to match real cheap at Wal-Mart. I thought it was going to be hard to find the right colors to match the material, but lucky me, these are the "in" colors this year. They both have one, but K's shirt is pink.

I LOVE how these skirts turned out, and I didn't even use a pattern for them. Just made 'em up by my little ole self. I've seen a bunch of girls wearing them, and decided they'd be easy enough to copy, so with their waist and leg measurements, I just made them up.

Well, I had some other bits of fabric, and got carried away. So, I ended up sewing some more. . .

Well, I didn't stop there, although that's all I have pictures for right now. No wonder this past semester was so busy, I spent tons of time sewing (really, it was to keep my sanity).

Now, I need some new great projects . . . Any suggestions?


  1. They look great! I love the skirts and the material used for them. So cute!

  2. Come and work on my projects that have been collecting dust over the past year!
