One hardworking pattern

thread Ssshhh... don't tell anyone, but I snuck in a little sewing the last few weekends in the middle of all this chaos. ;) And I got three different holidays worth of dresses from one pattern! The pattern is Simplicity 2989, a project runway girls dress. I love the sweet A-line skirt with the hem band. Soooo cute! Although I have to admit I have my eye on the ice cream dress in the new oliver + s collection.


So here is the Valentine's Day version, from the sweet birdie fabric. On a hanger:



And on my nieces at our swanky (ha!) tea party:




St Patrick's Day- check out the shamrock stitch on the hem! It's so nice to sneak in one of the crazy decorative stitches.

Easter for Ana:

Easter for Kate - (being modeled over PJs over here)

And one more purple dress with an easter bunny, for wearing to school on dress up day

Is it possible to have a pattern crush? Because this one is definitely in the running!

So cute! I especially love the St. Patrick's day one. You've certainly got your hands full; good for you for taking time out for what's important (i.e. sewing)!!

You now have a TNT (tried and true) pattern! When I find one of these for my DD, I buy it in all sizes during a pattern sale. My DD has had the same nightgown in several different sizes as she has grown. Very cute dresses you have made - you are a super auntie!

I LOVE the St. Patrick's day dress. LOVE IT. So cute and you got to use shamrock fabric and a deco stitch. Does it get any better?
