BEE HAPPY

Scarlet's Easter dress is done.  On Sunday, I tackled the dreaded button holes and discovered my machine does them quite easily. Surprise surprise.


I love the knots in place of the buttons  : )



No outfit is complete without the shoes


I didn't have time to try and find a tiny dress pattern for Janie, so she gets a pair of pants made from the leftover border print.


Quite some time ago, Katja gave me this little label and I have been saving it. It's perfect.


Oh! I bought another quilting book


This is how I justify it



That was easy          : )


pattern is Sister Smocks by Indygo Junction
fabrics are Bee Happy by Henry Glass & Co.

Awe...the little clothes are so adorable! I remember sewing dresses for my girly...now she hates dresses. =( Enjoy making them cute while it lasts...sometimes it doesn't last as long as we hope.

Love the colors! You'll have such a fun Easter. You know that one of the nice advantages of knots-in-place-of-buttons is that you can easily adjust the length of the strap to fit the darling in it.
Happy Easter

Such a darling little dress--she will look beyond wonderful in it on Easter morning. I love the knots, too, and the shoes and those cute little pants.

You made me laugh with how you justified the book. Terrific!!

Both the dress and pants are darling! I like the knots in place of buttonholes, too. My daughter's name is Bea, so of course I love anything with bees on it:)

That is just the cutest dress! I agree, the knots instead of buttons is an inspired touch! And the label - oh my!!!
