dress a girl around the world REVEAL

Last week I let you in on the cause I was so excited to get Little M working on.

LBG studioMy Mom, Little M and I got a great start on Sunday.  Picked our patterns, picked our fabric and even got a little cutting done.  We spent the whole week catering to a sick Grandma and son, so I am quiet impressed that we even have a reveal. . .to reveal.  It proves that these dresses are THAT easy!!!

We followed this pattern for the first dress.
We followed this pattern for the second dress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

We followed this pattern for the third dress. Are you curious what part Little M played?  She did quite a bit actually.
She helped measure.
She helped cut.
She even helped pin (very closely supervised).
Today we will box up these beautiful dresses, knowing that very soon a little girl will be twirling in a dress made with love.  What a wonderful experience for Little M. . .and me!

Have you found a great cause to get your little one excited about?  I want to hear about it!

I plan to jump right back into teaching preschool as soon as my kids are in school.

    I can’t wait to try something like this. I have a brand new sewing machine and I’ve been looking for a project. I think I’ve found one! My mom is 90 now and way different from when she was younger. I wonder if she and I could do this together.
    We might just try. Thank you.
