Catch Me if You Can

Oh man, my daughter just won’t sit still for hardly anything these days! Here are some pictures of her in some new dresses I made using a Lil Blue Boo pattern by Ashley. It’s the Sienna dress.
I have to say I love this pattern! It’s super quick to make too with so many possibilities! I highly recommend you get this pattern if you sew for a little girl in your life. It’s so well written and professional. Ashley rocks!

Shirring the sleeves up the side

*A little trick for long sleeves: I wanted to use the sleeves right off of a size 5t , but they were too long. I didn’t want to cut them off and have to hem them, so I just shirred up the sleeves (one up one side and another across on the other. It looks cool and makes the too long sleeve shorter.*

    Lovely! I love the coast guard one :o) And what a fantastic idea with the sleeves! I’m really excited about that!! Although, I have to admit….I don’t know how to do shirring!

    That is a great sleeve trick! I’m totally using that with my daughter’s shirts from now on. She’s always sucking on them and it drives me nuts! Thanks.
