4/5

4/5 of the dresses in a blurry picture that makes me look super happy (seriously, there are NO happy pictures of me during the wedding festivities... I had no idea I had an angry face all the time!)... but hey, you can see them in action! I'm so happy with how the dresses came out--I'll definitely be making more clothes in the future. But probably not yellow. Or circular. For at least a few days. :)



And in case you were wondering, I ended up hand-finishing the sleeves (while watching Arrested Development, excellent use of time, if you ask me), and I put embroidery-floss hand-crocheted belt loops on there to hold the sashes in place. Both worked out great, I'd say.

Would anyone be interested in tutorials of any of these things I'm making these days? I feel like I'm finally at a point where I might have something to show--lined zippers, fully lined dresses, hand-crocheted belt loops (felt hand puppets, whatever else I've made)... anything? I don't want to take the time to make a tutorial if it won't help anyone, but if you're interested, speak up please! I know everything I've learned has come from the internet/my own head and trial by error, so I'd be happy to share what I've figured out, if you want it. Let me know.

Those dresses are darling. Seriously, this is why I would love to have a girl, so I could make cute things like this. Not that I actually would, but I could at least think that I would.

The dresses are adorable, of course. I would love tutorials! Especially of those cute hand puppets, and how to put in zippers.

I'm with you on the "mad-face" phenomenon. I think it's a mom thing--we're always concentrating so hard on keeping the flock from killing themselves and keeping their clothes vaguely nice that we just don't look happy. We're concentrating, after all. :)

That picture confirmed my memory that everything was beautiful and the girls in their flowergirliness were adorable. Thank you so much for all of your work to make them and others look so good that day. xo

they are so adorable Jessie! I'll bet the bride loved them. I'm totally with you on the angry face-growing up everyone thought I was always mad because I guess I always looked angry...really it was my thinking face. ;)

p.s. excellent choice of entertainment!

Umm...YES?!?! I would love tutorials of ALL of your cute things. There's a reason I have "pinned" some of your other stuff. :)
