With Love


I made this outfit for Lil with a lotta love. I did it in one marathon sewing session this past Sunday. It was so much fun! Both the top and bottom are from patterns purchased through You Can Make This--my new favorite site for patterns.

The back of the dress turned out perfectly and is probably my favorite part. It looks as if it is shirred but it is actually four pieces of elastic running parallel to one another.

I promise to update on my smocking soon. It is turning out better than I had imagined and I've even learned to "picture smock" and have chosen the perfect pattern for her Easter dress. More later but for now I need to enjoy this little outfit a little longer.

oh that is too cute! I so wish I could sew. I bought my mom a new sewing machine for her b-day hoping she'd whip some girly outfits..so far zero! I think I will buy some of the patterns you mentioned and have us a summer project...oh, I say summer b/c I am off work, otherwise there is no time =)
so glad I found your etsy shop & blog.
