Latest

This is my latest finish.....a prototype of the 3 dresses I will make for 3 granddaughters (9, 7 and 6 years) for our beach vacation the end of June. I wanted to make sure about the size before I cut into the white material that I have. The pattern is like a "pillowcase" dress that I have seen but is super simple thanks to Sue who was gracious enough to share her directions after I spotted them on her blog. The beach ones will be white with khaki ribbons and possibly some eyelet trim around the hem. There will be 17 of us and I have instructed the family that I want them in khaki shorts/capris/skirt and a white top....any kind of white top. I only have 3 granddaughters out of the 9, and they will be in the dresses. I hope it works like I think it will....keeping everyone focused so that we can get a good shot??? Maybe after I have a Margarita or 2!

These will be very pretty. I saw a pillowcase dress on someone's blog and it looked great on

Oh this is so beautiful! What a great beach accessory, and will keep a fun memory alive for them. Keep the dresses once they grown and throw the fabric into a quilt!
