Fast & Furious Dressing for Preschool

Quick purple with sweats.  Fast & Furious Dressing for Preschool

Two very quick and very inexpensive dresses for play. The T-shirts were on sale at Walmart for $2.00 and the half a yard of fabric was $1.50. Add a little stabilizer around the bottom of the T-shirt after you cut it off. Gather the skirt with a Gathering Foot, add a hem and you have quick and cheap play clothes.

New Look in Easter Dresses

IMG_5614 IMG_5623 IMG_5622New Look in Easter Dresses

While shopping in Edmonds we walked by H&M and saw this jacket. It is purple, it is moto and it was in Claire’s size! I thought why combine moto with lace, as it is one of my favorite looks. Just wished they had the jacket in my size! Too cute.

The dress was my most complicated so far, as it is not one, but two layers and the lace is quite delicate. I loved the bottom of the lace, which you trimmed to a scallop when the dress was complete.

It will probably be a wear on Easter once dress, as it is quite delicate and Please Chadwyck take a photo for me with her dressed and holding her Easter Basket.

Once in a while nature surprises with an amazing moment. Looking out the window at the strong light, this Rainbow captured the horizon and make the world a beautiful place. This is when I feel very blessed to live where we can just look out the window and enjoy this.
