Lydia’s Sweetheart Dress Tutorial

These girls love to twirl in pretty dresses! Taking a break with the one who can’t twirl yet! This dress features a halter top and sweetheart neckline with a pop of orange trim,… …a button halter back,… …a twirly circle skirt (of course!),… …and another little pop of orange on the petticoat lining. This dress was the most 1950s-ish of all of the dresses I made. I can convince a 5yo a little easier than…

Turtleneck to Maxi Skirt Tutorial

This one has been a long time coming! I finally got some cute pics of my daughter in her maxi skirt so that I could finish up this post!  Last spring, when I was on my maxi skirt sewing kick, my 5yo had requested a RED one. Well, I thought I would just pick some fabric up at a nearby Walmart, but they no longer carry ANY knit at that store! 🙁 So, I wandered…
