Fall Dresses and Itty Bittys

Saturday I was finally able to sew! My girls needed a fall dress. I adore this fabric I bought at Elizabeth Annes, it was perfect for this project. I love the feeling of Fall, I am such a Fall/Winter kinda girl. I love the colors, smells, weather, our wood burning stove, coffee and hot chocolate, quilts, crochet, holidays mmm........ I love it all! It all makes me so happy. In my life it seems like so many good things have happened this time of year, I just get excited! Ben loves it too, we got married and had all our babies this time of year, it is so special to us. Now if our weather would just cooperate (still in the upper 80's here!) we could really get in the Fall mood.
My birthday was yesterday and this was my favorite gift, a picture of Lily and Iris and the news that they are expected to come home in the next few days! I can't wait! I want to touch them and hold them sooooo bad! This is the best gift ever! I have never seen something so sweet in my life! Iris holding her Lily! Absolute angels! I love being their aunt.

Oh, that picture is adorable! So are the dresses that you made for your girls! Yes, I agree about loving fall and winter...something we miss most about not being in the States...changing leaves and SNOW! :) Hope you had a happy birthday!

Very cute dresses! I feel your pain about the weather since I am in Phenix City, AL. What pattern did you use on your baby girl's dress?

Thanks Margaret! I drafted the pattern for molly's myself and I used "The Childrens Corner" pattern "Hillary".
