Addicted!!

I cannot find enough time in the day to sew all the things I want to. Remember this orient expressed outfit? I have always wanted to make it and have actually tried before and messed it up and ended up throwing it away. My friend at work Alicia figured out how to make the pattern and whoala!!! She actually used the Children’s Corner Lucy pattern to get started and I used the revised Charlotte (that is where the inspiration for the shoulder ruffle came from). I think next time that I make it I need to make the top longer and the bow longer. Not sure I will try to stick that ruffle in the bottom all the way around?!? Mrs. T- I’ll leave that for you:)

I had planned to tell you that this is soo easy (and it still may be for a veteran sewer), but I did wrestle with it abit. Mainly the ruffle sleeve!! That is why Emma’s on the left has no ruffle sleeve and LK’s has a crooked ruffle sleeve :O I definitely plan to make more of these so hopefully I’ll get better with practice. I am making little pants to match but I was so anxious to show you that I could not wait until the pants were finished.
Can you believe I didn’t monogram these? Well, I know that would be super cute but figuring I have three girls now.. I can’t monogram everything. & I am getting bored with the “T”

Speaking of my 3rd girlie: She is doing GREAT! She is 21 weeks and measuring perfect and kicking all around making me smile 🙂 She does have a name- Campbell Elizabeth it will be! Emma is so excited and talks to my belly and kisses it all day long. She also brings her dolls to me and asks that I show her how to change a diaper one more time. LK will pat my belly and say “baby” but not sure she has a clue. Not that she isn’t very smart & VERBAL for 20 mos! Let me tell you, I am amazed daily by how much that chickadee can talk- basically anything she wants to say. I love her to pieces!!!
