I haven't posted any of the new things I've sewn in too long.  I have so much to share!

Sketched Bird dress.  I love this fabric so much, little orange birds on pink and blue hearts.  It is a princess seamed dress with 2 pockets.

C'est La Vie dress for Chloe, my older girl.  I was going through my big scrap basket the other day and found the front and back of this dress in the pile.  I think I cut this out a year ago and just forgot about it.  I decided that it was time to finally sew it up.  I cut out the sleeves and decided to make a layered sleeve look because Chloe has been talking about wanting me to make her a shirt with layered sleeves.  There is a girl in the fabric that has a black and white striped shirt so I decided to go with something unexpected and used black and white striped fabric for the underlayer.  She LOVES this dress and is on day 3 of wearing it.  Only annoying part is that the fabric is cotton/lycra and the hem wants to flip up.  I ironed it and it flipped up immediately.  Anyone have any helpful tips?

Ultra-girly tank dress made out a cotton knit fabric and pink plaid seersucker binding.  I made an extra long sash out of pink polka dot fabric.

Cotton knit dress with an Asian vibe to it.  It has a crossover bodice and an attached circle skirt.  I made an obi style sash to go with it.

Another knit dress with an Asian vibe to it.  Crossover dress, this one isn't as twirly, it just has a slight flare at the button.  I put 2 red heart buttons on the binding.

Vintage style dress.  I made this dress for Chloe because she loved the fabric.  She likes it, but she never really wears it.  It's too fancy for her, she is all about comfort.  The dress has princess seams, a vintage style collar, and buttons down the back.

Another really girly cotton knit dress.  It has 3 tiers, making it super twirly.  I also made plaid pants that had narrow binding on the hem.

This one is a tiered dress made from a cotton voile fabric and lined with a white cotton fabric.  It has a pocket on each side.  The underdress is made from a cotton knit fabric.  It has a ruffle crossover bodice and gathered attached skirt.

Ok, I think that is all  Tongue

The dresses are amazing!  So hard to pick a favorite, but I think I'll have to go with dress number 3 because I love the long sash/tie.  Also, your girls are too too adorable and make the perfect models!!
