Emma Outside

Our Newest Little Girl

A friend gave us a dog, and she's a hit with the kids. This Jack-Russell & Schnauzer mix may not win any beauty pageants, but she's smart and sweet.

Ok, so maybe this is becoming a sewing blog!

I got this idea from to turn an old mens dress shirt into little girl's dress. Heavens knows we have plenty of dress shirts in this house so I grabbed one and got to work. I think it turned out pretty cute for $1.50 of trim and $.98 of elastic.

...and yes I know that I need to make the boys something... I am getting on that this week.

Emma and Ava in their matching dresses

I decided to make Ava a dress to match Emma's... but they were out of the black material. I went w/contrasting material and I think they turned out cute. Of course I had pretty cute models ;)
