Against all probabilities…

I have just finished making matching dresses for my girls.  I said I would never do this, given my own distaste for being dressed in matching velour dresses for many years with my own sister, but Miss Adventuress specifically requested it.  And Miss Braveheart is too young to mind, and was so eager to have … Continue reading

Sneak Peek: The Everyday Princess Dress

Sneak Peek: The Everyday Princess Dress

It is what its name implies; a princess dress that is comfortable, easy to wear, and easy to wash, and thus suitable for everyday use.  We’re not much on frills and furbelows around here, but Miss E is almost five, and is expressing more interest in dresses.  The lack of long-sleeved dresses, and the price … Continue reading

Snowman apron!

I finished the snowman apron!  It took several hours longer than I’d hoped, and was much more complicated than the little elephant print apron I made first for my daughter, but I love it.  And, more importantly, my son loves it.  He has decided, however, that it needs pockets, and I think he’s declining a … Continue reading

I made two aprons yesterday: one for my almost-three-year old, and one for my sister.  Here’s a peek at the one for my sister…and please pretend there’s not a box of brown sugar on the floor or a few dishes waiting to be put in the dishwasher on the counter…this is real life, people. 🙂 … Continue reading
