I love sewing for my daughter.  I started when she was really small and had a lot of mishaps along the way,but I feel like I'm finally getting the hang of it Smiley

I've been in love with this fabric for a while and I finally found a pattern to use it on Smiley


Vintage Dress by pixidance, on Flickr

My first try at a vintage pattern.  I made the collar detachable so that she could wear it with or without.

I also made the petticoat that she is wearing under it.  


Oliver + S Roller Skate Flip by pixidance, on Flickr

The top is Oliver and S's rollerskate dressed sized down about 3 sizes and with the neckline modified.  The pants are from violettefieldthread s.

They're lovely.  It's good to start sewing when the kids are young, because they are much less picky about their clothes and your skills grow with them.  By the time your daughter needs a prom dress you should be able to handle it with no problem.  Smiley
