Sweet White Gown

The Houston Ballet hosts a fabulous shopping event
every year in November called the Nutcracker Market.
Vendors from all over the country compete
to get into this show.
My friends, Cindy and Sharon, and I,
used to go to this event together every year,
until it became so crazy crowded that we gave up on going.
Maybe next year.
Anyway...long before my precious grandchildren were born, I spotted this little dress at the Nutcracker Market
and had to have it for a future grandbaby.
It has been hanging in my closet until today,
when I gave it to Georgia Kate.
I thought it was a dress, but my daughter
thinks it is a nightgown.
Either way, I love it!!!
It is by Designs by Beverly.
I just looked online and it looks like she is still in business!
I don't see this exact gown, but her things are so pretty!

Look at the detail on the sleeve. So sweet!

I didn't make this one, but I sure love it. :)

Pretty Pink Floral

It's Spring Break!
The weather has been cool and dreary which is just fine with me!
 I'm spending this week finishing up half finished projects
and starting some new ones.
I started this little dress a few months ago,
 and finally hemmed it last night.
I used an old Yvonne Denise pattern, "Erin Lindsey".

I just made up the smocking. I kept it very simple.

I tried to pick up the various shades of pink in the fabric, along with the yellow.

I think Miss Georgia Kate will wear this dress often. 
A little white blouse could be worn underneath, or not.
Happy Sewing!

Rodeo Time!

It's rodeo time in Texas!
Reid wore big boy cowboy clothes this year,
but Georgia Kate needed something to wear
with the red boots her daddy bought her!
I made this little jumper for her out of navy twill.

I copied a picture I found online for the horse.

Our little cowboy and cowgirl...

 Yee Haw!
