Dressy Barette Holders

Mom & I teamed up and made these pretty barette holders for the girls. You clip their barettes to the ribbons that are hanging down. The flowers on the belts weren't fastened at the point when this picture was taken, but they are now hanging on the wall full of their hairbows!

Hibiscus Floral Print Dress with Belt

I fell in love with this hibiscus fabric and for some reason if I love a piece of fabric, I have a hard time making something with it unless it is just the right thing...I think I did this fabric justice. My daughter loves this twirling dress. The dress is Butterick 4718 with sleeves from Simplicity 4658. One other alteration is that I lined the bodice...I am so "over" facing pieces. The dresss fits a little loose and long, but that is good since she will probably only wear it twice more this summer.

Flowers & Plaid Top & Capris

The top of this one is made from McCall's 5798 View A and the bottoms are Simplicity 3749 View C. LOVE LOVE LOVE this cutie patootie outfit on this cutie patootie kid!

Flower Splash Dress

This is Simplicity 4658 with a lined bodice instead of using the facing. I also added three inches to the length. She LOVES it and can't wait to wear it a couple of times before the fall hits. It is very loose fitting so she will have at least one thing to wear this spring!
