Well, almost done. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel. If and when I ever do this again (and who am I kidding - I obviously thrive off of long to-do lists), I need to plan better. Grammy and I just starting sewing and we will have enough but some things aren't coordinated exactly the way they would be if I had planned. And there are bigger problems in the world than perfectly coordinated custom Disney outfits so I'm going to shut up about it now. The only reason why I mention it is that the girls are very much into wearing matching and/or coordinating outfits these days. And I am slightly obsessive compulsive.
So here's Anna modeling my first Simply Sweet.
I was not happy with how the top fit the girls at all. (But I love how Anna asks to model for me now.)
I altered the top part of the pattern for a better fit. This is Allie's crazy Animal Kingdom dress with an altered top. I left it a little bit roomy but the addition of the side ties helps hide that.
Emily's crazy a-zebra-is-eating-Minnie Animal Kingdom dress.
She is skinnier than Allie so I made sure that the top was not roomy.
Anna requested a zebra print dress and so that's what she's getting. I still need to sew the skirt to the top so no pictures yet.
Oh, crap. I have some pictures of the Belle dress but I haven't edited them. If you know me, you know I'll be taking a million pictures of the girls in action in Florida so all of the outfits will be featured in my trip report.
I can't believe that the girls start kindergarten in a few weeks. We haven't done any back to school shopping, which isn't really a big deal considering that it will still be hot/very warm when school starts. I need to go through and clean out their closets again.
When the season of sewing finally comes to an end, I have a to-do list a mile long. Cleaning and organizing is at the top of the list. I feel like we've been living in a perpetual state of "I need to clean/organize/decorate/purge." The girls are five years old and I still have containers of my pre-baby clothes stored in the basement. I've come to accept the fact that if it doesn't fit now, it never will.
