It's back just in time for Summer!

The Summer Shirt/Dress!

If you would like to make this for your little girl then you can now go to my shop and purchase the pfd pattern for $6.00. I'm offering this other pattern for free if you buy the Summer shirt/dress pattern.
It is so easy that even the most inexperienced seamstress can do it.

Repurposed summer skirts

 What do you do with your little girls pants after she grows out of them and she is the last to wear them in the family?  Do you give them to a friend who you know will use them?  Do you give them away to charity?  Yeah, I do too, but this time I repurposed them and made skirts for my girls.  They were a little time consuming sewing on the embellishments, but it was fun to make them look cute and my girls love their "new" summer skirts.

Pajama makeover

I made these winter pajamas into spring/summer pajamas.  I just cut off the leg to the length that I wanted, then I cut a strip from the leg part that I was just gonna throw away.  I cut it about an inch wide and the length of the pants.  (Does that make sense?)  Then I sewed right in the middle of the strip and gathered it to make the ruffle and sewed it to the bottom of the shorts.  Then I cut off the arms to the length I wanted for my girls sleeve length.  I hem them, and there you go.  The perfect Spring/Summer pajama's. 

What projects have you done lately?
