So Cute

I think these are quite possibly the cutest things I've ever made. Except my kids, of course...
But I'm sure you'll hear me say that a few more times before I'm done sewing for this baby girl!

Fabrics: Little Red in Bluebell by Aneela Hooey and Herringbone in Red from Riley Blake
I used this tutorial from Sew Much Ado for the peasant dresses. My friend Kelli assured me it was a great pattern, and it really was so easy to sew up. By far the most annoying part was sewing the little elastic pieces together, and even that wasn't awful. 

Fabrics: Lantern  Flower in Zen by Kate Spain and Haybale in Yellow from Riley Blake
For the diaper covers, I used this tutorial from Made, which is such a great site for tutorials and fun ideas. These were easy to make, too, and so much cuter than diapers peeking out from under dresses!

Fabrics: Chicken Eggs in Maize and Daisy Ditsy in Green Acre, both by Sentimental Studios

I think that I like the dresses better when they have the contrasting sleeves, but they are cute either way, right? Now to just get the little girl here so she can model them!

Sorry for such a long break around here, but so far summer has been one long baseball game, with a few brief intermissions for illness and a trip to Iowa. Baseball is over at the end of June, so hopefully life will slow down a bit, though I'm not betting any money on that!  I hope you all are having a great weekend and a fabulous summer!

Thanks to my friend Sarah for reminding me that it isn't too late to enter this in the Summer Sewing Contest at Ellison Lane Quilts! There are so many fabulous entries over there, be sure to take a look!
