it has been a while. . . how are you? how were your holidays? do any fun holiday sewing?
do you know how much i wish we lived closer and could actually sew together?
i need the inspiration of an actual, real-life sewing buddy.
but you all are the next best thing!
so a great big
to all of my online friends.
and i guess, since you are here, i should show you something sew-y.
last january, my sis-in-law had twin girlies (so fun!). she asked me to make their blessings dresses (yay!) and even sent her wedding dress to use for fabric (double yay!).
and here is the end result:
the dress was inspired by the original baptism dress (pattern and tutorial here).
i used this tutorial to make these dresses, adding a little nylon chiffon ruffle between the lining and dress.
the headbands have a button from their mama's wedding dress on them.
and this one just had to be in their so you could see their actual cuteness! the best pinch-able cheekies ever!
and i have some more catching up to do. . . so stay tuned!
until next time,
