Princess Abby (for real this time)

I just realized that I never updated my blog with pictures of the Miss Crook County Pageant, which one of Dan's students participated in, and she had asked Abby to be one of her princess attendants.

So here are some pictures!

Back to the grind

I have been working on a huge custom order, and finally completed it and mailed it out this week! So I am taking advantage of some free time to sew for my girls, and also to sew up some instock for my cart.

I decided to start easy and quick, and made them both a couple of dresses yesterday afternoon.

Abby got a mock cross dress from a very spring like print with asian lanterns and fans. I love this print, and I think the color is just perfect for spring!

Andraya found some pink camo knit on the fabric shelves, and asked for a dress with a heart. And a pocket. Okay. Hmmm...... She also needs things with pants for transitional items, because apparently when you are almost three, you think it's funny to grow about 3 inches all of the sudden, making all your pants too short, with 5 weeks left of cooler weather. :) Little stinker!

So this is what I came up with for her, with matching leggings:

That was the one still pose out of many. Most looked like this:

I also sewed up a few things in the girls sizes for my cart. I will photograph those later today, and get my Hyena Cart stocked!
