Slowly moving into fall

I have been really busy with starting my 3rd year of homeschooling and doing all the things you have to do to kick off another school year. So I haven't had much time to sew. I did sew a few things in August for sweet friends of mine. I have one friend that has adopted from china and wanted matching dresses for her adorable girls. I made 2 apron dresses that would work in winter and spring. I used a fine whale corduroy in raspberry for the top of the dress. I used a cream velvet to finish out the hem on the apron. The ties and hem on the skirt is made from a micro gingham check in light blue. See photo below

Next I made an outfit - capri and tie top for another sweet little girl. The top ties at the shoulders and has pockets. The pants are made from an apple fabric and are capri length

We went to the beach at the end of the August and I wanted to make Corinne some fun wispy beach pants. Below is a photo of the the pants. I trimmed the hem in sweet cotton lace.


  1. Adorable----Love the beach picture of Corinne!

    Love and miss you.
