Spring Fashions-- Sewing projects

Did you know I sew too?  I consider myself a beginner still, but I do enjoy sewing.  Every once in a while, I will bring out my machine, fabric and supplies and create a few projects.  Then I'll put it away for a couple months.... 

This week, I started out by hemming some of my husband's baseball pants.  I have had a few sewing projects brewing in my mind, so I kept the machine out and went to town :)

I created this tank top dress via my dear college friend Heather's blog/tutorial. I was so excited to see when she posted this tutorial, because I had just purchased a couple plain tanks from Old Navy's sale!  I plan to make another one of these this week :)


I adore this super cute outfit too!  My mommy group friend Amy from Positively Splendid has done a couple of these ruffled appliques on t-shirts, so I used her tutorial found HERE. 
The skirt is just a simple A-line skirt that I attempted to add a ruffled edge to.  That part did not turn out quite like I had envisioned, but its cute none the less. 

I can't wait for it to get a little warmer so my little darling can wear these cute creations :)

Cute cute cute!! I love how the ruffled edge turned out, even if it isn't how you envisioned.
