Time for a change

Like my new background? I thought is was cute too. I found it at Shabby Blogs
The best part? It's called Lydia's Apron!

I just finished sewing up a few things. I am a tester for CarlaC and I just sewed up this adorable springy dress for Lydia. I used SisBooms Casey Scroll in this fabulous pink! I added a sash to the dress. I'll be making more of these! You can buy the pattern at CarlaC's site or on YouCanMakeThis .

Then, yesterday, I made a dress for my niece, Tessa, for her Father Daughter Dance. My sister is a wonderful sewer herself, so I was honored that she asked me to make it!

I used CarlaC's "The Precious Dress" pattern (which I like to think of as "The Lydia" ) unfortunately, the card reader on my computer is not cooperating with me at the moment, so I don't have a picture. I'll update with one as soon as I can. For now, you will have to take my word for it that it was pretty cute!

Edit: My sister uploaded a picture of the dress, so I stole her picture!

She was much happier with the dress than the picture looks! She adores that dress! Thank you so much for making it for her! I knew it would turn out gorgeous if you did it!! ((HUGS))

I wasn't sure how you'd feel about me posting her face, so I picked the one where she was looking down. She looks happy to me. :-)
