I think the bows make them even cuter. I figured she couldn't just run around in her bloomers,(well, she probably could since she's just a baby) so I decided to make a pillowcase dress to go with them. Once again I had no pattern. I actually went to the fabric store to purchase one but every variation of pattern was sold out. These dresses are super popular around here. I knew I really didn't need a pattern so I got back online and did some googling and came across this blog. Oh. My. Word. I love this blog. If you are a beginning sewer like me you are going to love Eva Marie at Couturier Mommy! She has lots of video tutorials that have helped me so much. Here is the dress I made my neice.
Is that cute or what? I made this for her to wear to a family barbecue we were having. Every southern girl since Scarlett O'Hara knows a good barbecue dress is a must!
I made the bloomers and the dress out of $1 bandanas that I found at Hobby Lobby.
Well after finding Eva's blog, that was all she wrote, I was hooked! I found some awesome blogs on sewing and crafting and home decor. Pretty soon I found myself starting my sentences with "I saw the cutest thing on this blog..." The more blogs I read the more I realized I was a lot like these women - just a normal girl who likes to be creative and decorate and entertain. I figured since I had been so inspired by these blogging women that maybe I could be an inspiration too. Atleast that is my hope.
Here is a list of my top 5 favorite blogs just to get you started:
Also, check out this blog. She's new to blogging (like me).
I found her through Kim at Savvy Southern Style. She's got some beautiful paintings and she's hosting a giveaway celebrating her 6 month blogging anniversary.
