Here are some things I have made the girls lately. Both of these dresses are made using McCall's M 5370. I made Sarah's a little longer by lengthening each tier. Maddie's I made shorter by only using two tiers. I wanted her pantaloons to show! They are both made with $2/yard fabric from Walmart. I added a few pintucks on Sarah's bodice & I love it. I want to use pintucks more often. They add so much to something simple.

This is a few T-shirts I have embellished with yo-yos and an applique. I absolutely LOVE applique. I got the idea the flower with the yo-yo center from a poster on craftster.

As you can see, I don't update very often. I have been busy this past month sewing & going on vacation. I did a couch & ottoman slipcover for a friend, then I have been sewing up outfits for the girls like crazy! I will try to post some later, after I get pictures taken. We just got back from Disney World. We had the best time. The girls got lots of compliments on their appliqued birthday T-shirts, so that was nice. Now that summer is here I will try to post more often. Have a great day!
