I made these dresses for my girls this month.  I made them all in 2 days' time.  I don't recommend that.  LOL 



This is the good pose!  Here are a few that, um, aren't as good....   ?  LOL

Here are the outtakes:

Oh, how sweet! I love the solid colors.. That green is a great color, and I LOVE anyone willing to wear orange. Smiley (At least, orange that solid. Hehe.)

Thanks!!  And seriously, don't try to make 3 outfits in 2 days!!  I was so bleary-eyed by the time I was done!  I was making them for an event we went to and decided a few days before we were to leave that I should make some new dresses.  Too bad I didn't think of the week before!!  ugh!   Roll Eyes

I used the same fabric for all 3 dresses.  I let the girls choose the color of their trim.  It's grosgrain trim with little white dots on the edges.  I loved it!  My oldest daughter HATES pink or anything 'girly'.  So she picked orange.  My middle daughter LOOOOVES pink and went straight for it.  My youngest also loves pink but wasn't quick enough on the draw.  LOL  I finally got her to pick a color and she chose green.  I used different patterns for each dress.  I'll have to go find the patterns to find the numbers/brands if you want to know them.

I am thrilled with how they came out.  I'm glad you like them.  Cheesy

Great looking dresses, and what a wonderful looking group of children you have! Each dress being different but in the same fabric makes for individuality. What a great mommy!  Smiley

I love how they are all dressed in the same fabric (belong together look) but that you made the dresses to be age appropriate for each child! I bet they love them!!!!

Gorgeous stuff!  I especially love your oldest dd's bubble (is that what it's called?) skirt.  You should make a matching necktie for your boy.

Yes, it's a bubble skirt.  I love those!
I never thought to make a tie for my son.  I should use the pink ribbon to trim it out.  LOL

Great job! I love how each has her own distinctive style!
Looks like you have a lively crew, which makes your accomplishment in 2 days that much more impressive.

They hate to pose nicely for photos.  Punks!  LOL  They are all about rabbit ears and goofy faces.  Getting one decent picture is a job!  Cheesy

Thank you all for the compliments.  I am actually thrilled with how they came out.  I'm proud of them.
