Macy Giggles Dresses for the girls

Hello everyone!  Jessica has definitely taken over the blog writing for quite some time now, but I thought I'd pop in and say hi today!  I have not had much to share over the past few months (or even a year) since having a new baby and selling our home and moving to a new one...  It has been quite some time since I even had my sewing machine out and the other day I felt like I really needed to be somewhat creative and make something.  Since summer is here, I thought new dresses may be fun for the girls.

 So, do you remember in movie "The Sound of Music" when she make outfits for the kids out of her bedroom curtains?  Well, I couldn't bear to store the girls' old curtains from their bedroom at our old house that I had made out of Jennifer Paganelli fabric, so I cut them up into a couple Macy Giggles Dresses (pattern is by Izzy and Ivy Designs).

My youngest daughter is big enough to fit into the 2T size of this dress and it was so much fun to make almost matching dresses for them.  I adore the straps on this dress- they hug their shoulders so nice and the dress really fits them quite nicely.

I also made some fabric flowers - I had not made any like these before and it was super simple and easy to make a cute accent.  I made them removable so we can change them out or for when we need to wash the dresses.

Here is my oldest daughter holding up her sisters dress - we didn't get a picture of them together since the little one was sleeping at the time, but we'll have to make sure and do that soon.
Hope you all are having a great day! - Jennifer
