Easter Cousins in their Tilly Dresses


Hey gang! stopping by to share some Easter photos and the dresses I made for Parker and her cousin Hailey.  They seriously were ADORABLE.  I used the Art Gallery collection called Littlest and I heavily modified the Tilly top by Brownie Goose.  The dress had mega twirl potential! They both had their buckets from the POP Shop and matching headbands.  They might look back at this 20 years from now and say.."OMG why did my mom dress us matching!!!!"  Oh well girls :)

Make it Monday- Bella Blvd & The Potato Chip Skirt



IMG_9848
Spring is NEAR! Hallelujah! Time to get to sewing up new spring clothes. The Potato Chip skirt is a new pattern by Tie Dye Diva. It comes in three options, lined, unlined and reversible. I chose to go with lined version since I used the Sunny Happy Skies white with polka dots fabric.

I used Snapshots Hearts in Orange for a fun pop of bright to line the pockets. The pattern teaches you how to add decorative piping even! I didn't go that far, but next time for sure.

With my leftover fabrics I made a matching applique shirt (pattern found HERE).

Make it Monday- Deco Doil Boot Spurs & a Tilly Top

IMG_9750
I used a tried and true favorite pattern of mine for my daughters top, you may even recognize it.  It’s theTilly by Brownie Goose and has been here a few times.  I modified it again to have an open back with sash closure.  Perfect for anytime of year and it pairs perfectly with her Lily Ruffler bottoms.

To create the spurs I followed the instructions in the design.  I used the same technique from myprevious post to apply the iCraft® Deco Foil™ to wool felt. If you look through Sevens Emporiums designs there are a few I think would be fantastic childrens party favors.  Gold Sheriffs badges come to mind!
