New Ruffled Dresses

We went to the beach at the lake today and took some photos of the girls in some new ruffled dresses I made and designed for them. It was the most perfect day of sunshine and a little wind. Can you believe we are already in the 90's?
I was able to get some photos of AddyKate! Woohoo! I have been trying for 2 years. She is always on the go but with Tim's help and some candy, she was more than willing to look at the camera and even cross her legs. We had been asking her to cross her legs for about 5 minutes to no avail and then Tim pulled out some candy and without him asking again, she immediately crossed her legs. So funny because I always think she just might not be old enough to follow instructions. Oh no, just not interested or motivated enough. I still don't know how photographers get babies and toddlers to smile and look so adorable all day.

Love the dress! Would love the pattern! I have a daughter and neices who would wear this dress everyday! I wish I had a 1/4 of your talent ;)

Tiffany, I used very lightweight cottons from Joann's. They were around $4.99 a yard. Can you believe that? I do love high quality solids from quilt stores but they are rarely the right shade or hue that I am looking for. Linen would work great too.
For Addy's (the grey and pink one), I upcycled a dress shirt for the striped fabric. I am eyeing a few of Tim's blue dress shirts to make a blue and white striped one with some eyelet tossed in. I haven't broken the news to him yet though. :)

greenbamboo said...

I usually don't buy fabric from JoAnn's anymore after discovering high quality fabric for quilts but it can get $$$$. So thanks for the suggestions... I'll be looking for light weight cotton... for that price, I wouldn't feel bad if it gets dirty.LOL - Tiffany

I know what you mean. I went years without stepping foot into a Joann's for fabric but I really do love the lightweight cottons that they carry. Batiste cotton really is the best but it is about $20 a yard and for just play dresses for the girls I really don't have to have the good stuff every time. :)
