So I got on a roll of sewing for Zoey. I made her just a few things last summer, but really, she was just too tiny not to look overwhelmed by the gathered, shirred stuff I was making. But now that she's bigger...look OUT! LOL These were all made with designer fabric, mostly Michael Miller...
|Knot Dress/Top. I fussy-cut the bodice so the design would be centered. Once a quilter, always a quilter.|
|Owl print Peasant Dress with Sash|
|Owl print scalloped skirt. I made this without a pattern. Figuring out the measurements for the scallops was the hardest part.|
|Shirred Dress. This makes me nostalgic because I do the shirring on my mother's old sewing machine, so I don't have to mess with the bottom tension on my precious Pfaffy.|
|This one was Sarah's (Zoey's momma's) fave. Here's the original:http://www.tiedyedivapatterns.com/product/ruffle-neck-dress-pattern-the-daydreamer-dress-for-girls-2-10 . Sarah liked mine better. :-)|
|Pink and Black Twirl Skirt. Couldn't get Zoey to twirl in it, though.|
|Bright Print Twirl Skirt|
|Shirred Dress/Top. I made this with no pattern. I attached the rose to a pin back, so it's removable. Again, made on my mom's old machine. She got yogurt on it before the 'photo shoot', so I didn't get a pic of her wearing it. (Zoey, not my mom!)|

Sometimes I feel like I'm talking to myself...
