New Dress

I love the this blog. Rachel scours the web each day to consolidate the most inspiring, most relevent, and most fun projects that people have come up with. It was here that I got the idea for this fun dress!
The idea for this dress comes from My Mama Made it. I spent more time than I care to share poring over her ideas and tutorials. Wow! I love sewing because it is like studying Scripture- the more I learn, the more I realize I don't know and the more it spurs me on to tackle it even further.
I used one of Beau's old dress shirts to make this fun jumper. I love My Mama Made It's attention to detail. The pockets on the jumper are lined with a funky fun fabric. They are also gathered a little to make them even more girly.
I had to again use gumballs as bribes (we are getting low on gumballs..) but my subject held still for a few photo ops. It fits her well, the colors look great on her, and she seemed to like that it was made just for her.
I keep losing naps to attempt new sewing projects, but it clears my mind and rejunevates me almost as much as an hour of sleep. Can you believe it? It is much more rewarding. I can't wait to try the next idea!

You are awesome! That is just the cutest dress on the cutest little girl!! Yes it does fit her perfectly and looks terrific with her complexion and eyes. I love the idea of repurposing daddies shirt. Too cute!
