|This one was exciting. The top portion is a remnant I found a while ago but didn't know how to use it. The bottom part was also a remnant that was on super sale. Altogether, this dress was about $3!|
|This fabric was not a remnant. But I had bought it with a coupon months ago and just never used it. This dress is also sleeveless but I like it better with a little cardi.|
- I didn't use the skirt pieces that it gave, I just measured my own hips :)
- Also, the neckline on the bodice was a little lower than I like so I cut it about 1 and 1/2 inches higher on the gray dress than the brown dress.
- For the bodice, instead of ironing and sewing a small seam on the neck and sleeves (curves are so hard) I cut two pieces for the front, and two for the back. I sewed them right sides together on the neck and sleeves and turned them inside out. This gave a much neater seam and also added an extra layer. The material I used was pretty thin.
Happy Dress Making!!!

This was no joke, such an easy skirt to make and not only did it fit nicely, it was oh so comfy. It took me more than an hour because I've got two amazing and awesome tornadoes running around. But other than that, I'm sure it would take only an hour.

Here's the internet image....
and here's what I made. The mask moved as we tried to take pictures.
and my little Robin.
I'm really happy with out they turned out. It was a labor of love!
Isaac also decided what he wanted mami and daddy to be. Lucky for him, we already had the costumes made from years ago! We're HUGE fans!
Justice League forever!!!

Take a walk around my Autumn house with me.....
My mantel with fabric pumpkins
My square leaf wreath for the back door, made last year
Leaf candles, also previously made
A bowl full of mums leftover from my wreath
A leaf banner for the mantel
These are on the piano. If you look closely, I etched them with our monogram.
Newly made fall valances
Mum flower ball and plaque
My fall front step with monogrammed pumpkin.
My revamped wreath
And my two special pumpkins! These two have been keeping me quite busy (and not blogging :)

- A t-shirt (bigger sizes are best)
- ribbon or shoe lace
- safety pin
Here we go! First lay your t-shirt flat.
Cut straight across just under the sleeve line. Depending on the size of the design on the back, you may or may not have it showing when your skirt is done.
Next, cut a tiny slit through ONE SIDE of the bottom hem.
Now take a safety pin and attach to the end of your shoe lace or ribbon. Then, start feeding it through the hem.
Once you've gone around, this is what it will look like. This is what will tighten it to your waist. Just tighten and tie a bow.
And TA-DA! You're done.
Seriously so easy. It might take more than 5 minutes if you've got a toddler and infant distracting you :)
This skirt is super comfy. Now, mind you, it's not a church skirt or a work skirt. This is more of an around the house, day at the pool/beach, play date at the park type skirt.
Another hint, Michael's sometimes has their plain t-shirts on mega sale and they come in a lot of great colors. Like hot pink! Awesome!
