It took me all summer...

But I finally finished these for my girls in time for church on Sunday:

Meg intended to make the top as part of her 4-H project until she switched to a pillow. She picked out the fabric from my stash, and since there was lots of it - outfits for everyone!

This simple pattern came from youcanmakethis.com. This wrap top/dress comes in sizes 1 year to 10. While I wouldn't recommend this as a first sewing project, they were easy to sew and fun to wear!


  1. The girls look beautiful- what a wonderful job you did!

  2. Sweet!! I had not noticed how tall Brigitta is getting until she stood next to Meg! Gracious! Beautiful girls....and we get to see them this week! Yay!!!!!

  3. I meant to tell you Sunday how pretty they were! I've been sewing a few things, just not clothes. And I totally cleaned and organized my craft stuff this past weekend while Cameron's parents were here! Yea for me! :)
