Four is perfect for a weekend sew :o)


I was able to finish four little dresses this weekend.  The first took the longest since no matter how hard I try, I am not a pattern reader.  I like to see things done so it takes me a try or two ( sometimes three) to be able to *see* what I am reading.  After I figured out what I supposed to be doing I had an assembly like ready to go.  It only took a few hours not much more to make the three remaining dresses give or take 30 minutes since apparently people living here want to eat and still need laundry washed.  Hopefully there will be a playdate organized soon ( I am trying) to have many hands making these adorable dresses to send to some very deserving girls.




Alexander Henry Kleo is one of my all time favorites. I have a skirt in the black/red colorway.


Ginger Blossom Tiles by Sandy Henderson!  I can see a little girl feeling like a princess in this dress!


Amy Butler Love is one of the happiest fabric lines EVER and this one makes my heart sing!


The love for making these prompted a stash raid!  Everything has been properly washed and dried and is waiting to be ironed ( any volunteers?) It may be time to teach the kids to iron,LOL!

It's a beautiful pattern and you've definitely chosen some fabulous fabrics. I have some (well, a small bit now) of the Amy Butler Love and it's gorgeous. Thanks for making all these!

I make dresses for an orphanage in Haiti. Could you tell me what pattern you are using?

Thank you.

For a minute there I thought you were going to say you were organising a playdate to feed, water and launder the kids ;o) Loving all the wee dresses though
