all hemmed up!

here is the promised pictures of the project my mom and i were working on, on the weekend. we used the Sandi Henderson Claire pattern. it was such a fun beginner project. i would recommend it to anyone wanting to take the plunge into clothing.

i had a few questioning comments on my choice of fabric, but it turned out exactly how i envisioned it. my inspiration for the fabric choices came from Simone Howell, she makes the cutest bags and purses. i love all of the fun combinations she puts together. why go matchy, matchy, when you can SPICE it up a little ; )

i LOVED making this cutey an Easter Dress!
she looks so beautiful in it and i can tell she feels special.

which is all a mom hopes for when making something for her child...
