What do you do when you have four sons and your first grandchild is a girl? You make little girl clothes, of course.

This was my first attempt at clothing in 12 years and then it was simple costumes for children's theater. Note to self: directional patterns need to be considered when cutting out pattern pieces if we don't want the birds sitting upside down.

I really had fun learning some new techniques like snap tape for the crotch. And then, of course, I had to make a coordinating headband.

The next outfit will be a little sundress with matching bloomers. Too cute.

well, the upside down birds will be right side up for her to look at. Adorable.
You ladies have been sooooooooo busy.
