sweet sundressess


When I was a little girl my mom used to make my younger sister and I matching dresses every Easter, so it only seems fitting that I would do the same for my grand daughters.

Nothing complicated to be sure just these little pillow case inspired shifts.

With their six year age difference it's hard to find matching clothes so I have a feeling I will be making these little dresses until six year old Emily puts her foot down and says, no more.  I think I was probably around ten or so when I made that request.

Not that it did any good.  My mom continued to sew them up and every Easter picture from that time until she finally stopped will find me with a preteen attitude showing on my face and in my crossed armed, slouched shouldered body language.  Oh, the angst of girls for sure!

We are expecting gorgeous weather in the high 70's this weekend so hubby and I are headed out to my moms to celebrate my birthday.  That means a little golfing (for him) and shopping (for me). After thirty two years of marriage we are good with that arrangement.  No worries, we will reconnect around dinner time for a little celebrating together.

What about you?  Anything fun planned this weekend?

  2. Patty, the dresses are adorable! I used to sew when my first son was born, every day during nap time. I guess I will have to polish up on my skills, now that I have a granddaughter on the way!!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. Awww! Those dresses are beautiful, I have always liked the look of the pillow case dresses.
