Today I some how managed to convince the hubby to let me sneak away and sew for a good portion of the afternoon while he and Marcelo vegged out and watched nickjr (I suggested a trip to the park but Julio said it was too hot. . . where is the eye roll smiley when you need it?). I made 2 dresses one pillowcase dress for a friends daughter and I tried out a new pattern and made a dress for Ms. Gianna the pattern is called the Mango dress http://www.etsy.com/shop/ManiMina This lady on Etsy has ADORABLE patterns and it was pretty easy for the most part (this is where I tell you how much of a ding dong I am and that I couldn't figure out how to put the pattern pieces together then after I finally figured it out I only cut out 1 skirt piece when I needed 2 . . . yea I deserve a HUGE . . . DOH!) and the dress turned out fantastically. Here is my little model showing it off
.excuse the bed head she had just woken up from nap . . . personally I think the look suits her well.
This is my favorite Gianna face!
The pillowcase dress is so far my FAVORITE thing to make its simple, doesn't require a pattern, and can be made in ANY SIZE! Which means I AM MAKING ME AND GIANNA MATCHING DRESSES! Here are some pictures of the dress I made today.
I am so proud of ME!
I will be selling the pillowcase dresses for $20, so if your little lady needs one let me know and I can get one whipped up for her in no time!
