So, look, I had pretty much accepted that I wasn't going to be able to sew all these Disney outfits for the girls. Even though I've gained ten hours of time each day by not going to work, it's pretty easy to use up that time. I'm sleeping later, then there's an hour to make, eat and clean up after breakfast, an hour to make, eat, and clean up after lunch, usually two and a half hours to make, eat and clean up after dinner, a few hours watching the kids in the pool, play dates, library visits, laundry. . . you get my point.
At lunch one day, I told the girls I wasn't going to be able to sew clothes for every day and would it be okay if they wore normal clothes. I really didn't think they would care.
They wanted to inventory what had been made. They wanted to know what still fit from our last vacation two years ago. They questioned how long it would take for me to sew more.
And then the kicker. "Mommy, get off your phone and sew!"
I spoil them because they're my only kids to spoil. So I sewed.
The results . .
A quick, somewhat easy project is to attach a skirt to a tank top. I love how these dresses look.
Taking photos for this post was not as easy as one would think it would be. The response I received when I asked the girls to try clothes on for photos was, "Aren't you just going to take pictures when we are there?" Allie agreed to model and model she did.
(She's even doing the pigeon toe thing here.)
When short on time, a simple skirt is a quick sew.
I even made three coordinating skirts for Minnie's Beach Bash Breakfast at Cape May Cafe.
I didn't photograph every item and Grammy helped out by sewing a handful of skirts but the girls now have an outfit for each day. They are so excited for this vacation!
