Did the girls spin all through church? My girls spun till they were dizzy and bumping into people!

I love the dresses and even your flower bed behind them. Great work – did baby brother get a new outfit?

Yes, the did enjoy spinning. What girly girl doesn’t?

And that flower bed in the pictures? Can’t take credit. It’s my neighbors. He’s an amazing gardener. Every family in the neighorhood takes their Easter pictures in his front yard.

Happy Easter.

I LOVE that dress pattern! So adorable!

Where do you get these vintage patterns? I really would like to try some out for myself.

This will sound harsh, but every new creation makes me hate you more! Your talent is astounding! Those may be my favorite so far!! Beautiful!


Brittany April 14, 2009 at 4:53 pm

Nice work, Carrie. Or do you count that as playing?

Alison – I picked up one of the patterns from a vintage pattern seller. You can find them with google. The other one was handed down to me from my husbands grandmother via my mother-in-law. It was a treasure amid a huge bag of fun, old patterns.

Please teach me everything you know. I promise I will sit quietly and listen :)

Wow! Both dresses are amazing!


Julie April 14, 2009 at 7:45 pm

OMG! I was clicking through some of your links when I happened upon this particular dress just now. My mother had those sheets for me when I was a little girl! In fact, I think she still has them! Guess next time I visit her I’ll have to check the closets, I foresee several new dresses for my daughter out of some of my mother’s old bed sheets! :)
