My little leprechauns! They came back from preschool filled with wonder about leprechauns on Thursday. Who are they? Why do they like gold? Why are they so tricky?
Juliana was told that she must wear green on St. Patrick's Day, and she, of course, didn't have anything green in her wardrobe, and I, of course, promised to make her something to wear. Then I, of course, procrastinated until the night before and frantically sewed until midnight. ;0p Luckily, I picked an easy little dress to make. This is Butterick B3772. It is just a simple jumper. I made a size six, but shortened it a little. It is a little big on her, but I think will provide some room to grow.
I see making another one of these. Iveyc95 has this awesome tutorial to make a cute ruffled version of this, and I definitely want to give it a go.
I also made Juliana this cute little apron skirt a couple of weeks ago for Mardi Gras. This skirt is from the book Little Girls, Big Style. I *love* this book. She takes four simple patterns and shows you how to make all sort of fun variations. None of the patterns are very complicated, but that is just the way I like it. I have another outfit that I have made from this book already, and this is definitely going to be my go to book this summer. This skirt was a pretty easy afternoon project. I jazzed the skirt up a bit with some pink ric rac and shabby chic flower, and the girl was ready to party.
Now the question is where did she learn to pose like this?!
It seems like only yesterday she was just my sweet little, chubby three year old posing in her little twirl skirt. *sniff, sniff*
