Tallulah dress

this pattern is supposed to be easy and simple, few facings and seams, but the effect is beautiful and sophisticated for such a little dress.  I have had a nerve wracking time getting it just right the first time.  I hate do overs, so I have read and re-read the pattern and instructions many tmes prior to cutting out and sewing each seam.  The preparation has paid off now I'm nervous about the hems.

I'm in a different world

A girl's world, actually, with pinkness and rufflings and flowers, you would think it was springtime around here.  Just when I think the cold weather is settling in, was getting used to it, now we have a tornado warning.  Oh well. 

Have you heard of A Girl's World by Jennifer Paganelli?  I received this wonderful book for Christmas, and am all fired up about sewing for the little 2yr old girls in my life.  My sis picked out Hydrangea fabric for her little one, mine is getting a pink sundress.  More pics to follow.
