More sewing!

And my favorite dress as of late...  Sandi Henderson's Knot dress (Claire Pattern).  VERY VERY easy... the only reason it took me a while to get done was that I only followed the pattern for the bodice... the rest I made up myself and added a bunch of extras to it.  This is out of the Sandi Henderson Secret Garden fabric (with some Moda thrown in too).  I LOVE this fabric and discovered that it matches our (very hard to match) khaki green couches.  There will be a blanket and some pillow covers coming sometime in the near future!  I made the skirt out of four different fabrics instead of the recommended two and then added a ruffle on the bottom and a few ruffles on one of the panels.  I need to take a few detail photos of this dress but for now, these will do.

 The color on these next few photos is off but it was raining on the day that she wore this outfit last week.  Oh well... the pants are from the Sandi Henderson ruffle pants pattern and I LOVE them.  The size four with extra length fits her ADORABLE!  The pants go with the jumper but I think I like it way better on their own since she has a top that matches perfectly.

The background color of this main print is the same color as our couches.  It will make some fun summery pillows and I have been dying to make a blanket like this one or this one.

I love the ruffle pants so much that I whipped up another pair that I will take photos of tonight.  There may be a third pair in the works for preschool!  I want to try some out of denim and maybe a khaki pair when her khaki pants that she has now get too small.
