Friday morning

All ready for school but could we smile! I think a petticoat would have helped the dress but I was lucky to get the dress done. Jessica loves the dress.

High Tea

Jessica's grade 3 class is having a "High Tea" for their valentines party tomorrow. So Jessica asked if I would make her a dress to wear. Well this is it. I used a pattern out of my Australian Smocking and Embroidery magazine but I did not do the smocking as I didn't have time to do it. But I think I will do another dress with the smocking at a later date. It really is a very cute dress. Instead of smocking I just wrapped a large sash around which looks fine too. I will try and get a picture of her wearing it tomorrow morning.

Doing some sewing

Been doing a little sewing lately. Working on the flannel I bought recently. Making the easy peasy pj pants for Christian. Also have some cut for the girls so will get them done shortly as well. Then need to finish Jessica's dress for her "High Tea" party at school on Friday. So hope to post a picture of that this week.
