A pink dress

A dress for "the other Emilee". Made from Heather Ross Lightening Bug Wild Flowers fabric. Pattern is the smocked dress from the Heather Ross book Weekend Sewing. My Emily chose the fabric.
I didn't do a very good job on the lines. They are a little wonky and because I used a thread that was not a great match, you can see the lines getting wobbly.

My Emily wore the dress 1st then I took pictures of the other Emilee wearing it. This dress is so easy and fast. I started it while diner was cooking and finished after we ate. An hour or two at the most I think is all it took. It's very satisfying because it can be finished so fast.

Ava...

The *special* glasses.

Emily's new (used off eBay) bathing suit. Isn't it adorable??? It's a smocked top!! And it's all bathing suit material. I was thinking this would be somewhat easy to make. This one is from Ralph Lauren.

I agree with BCA! Made me melt. How can those girls keep getting cuter???

The dress for Emilee is darling, Emily has great taste and a great momma. I'd've never noticed the sewing lines if you hadn't said something. It is just that cute!

The dress is so cute. It would probably still take me an entire day.

I love all the pictures, but the one of just Ava is my favorite. She looks like she's starting to thin out =( She's turning into a little girl now, no more baby. Sniff Sniff!

Love the bathing suit!
