Pretty in Peach



Here’s a little sneak peek! This is what I made using some of this fabric and this pattern courtesy of the aptly named blog Make It and Love It. I did make it, and I do indeed LOVE it!! Ashley’s patterns are always so delightfully simple and easy to understand. Mine was made from a bed sheet purchased at the thrift store for just $1, and there is plenty of fabric leftover! The minute I saw the bed sheet, I knew I wanted to use the decorative edge as a ruffle on a cute sundress.


The pattern is available for sizes 6-12 months all the way up to size 5T, so I’m planning a few more of these for Emily as well.
What about the other fabric, you ask? It is going towards a very special (and frugal) project, indeed! More on that soon…..
And…….there is a fun giveaway starting tomorrow, so be sure to check back!

    I LOVE it! I'm so jealous of people that can sew! My sewing ability ends with duct-taping hems! LOL!

    @ Christy, Booklover1212 & Green Mamma — You don't know how to sew?? That is a sin! You guys are missing out! Hmmm…. I might have to do something about that……. maybe an online workshop? Wouldn't that be fun??
