simplicity 5695 and other stuff

I have had my parents in town for the last week and a half and it has been bliss. Totally wonderful for both me and the kids. My dad left Wednesday and I sent my mom sadly off today and am trying to help my three year old understand that I can't call her and just tell her to come back even though he wants me to. In the past few weeks I have attempted the Built By Wendy Top semi successfully because I think I need a bigger size (this does run small, right?), made sleeping bags for Webkinz, sewed some pjs for a nephew, and watched my mom make me the Emmeline Apron. After she left today, I decided to delve in to a dress for my youngest. I used a Simplicity pattern 5695. It was a simple dress and I love how it turned out. It's a 2T and she is 18 months so it's a bit big on her, but something to look forward to.

Very cute! I totally have that pattern -actually have had it a couple of years. I just haven't used it yet, I'll probably have to adjust the size now to fit Addie. But after your cute finished product, I may just be inspired enough to whip one out. I love the style -cute, simple, and totally comfortable!

This has turned out so cute-and the colours look great with her pretty red hair, too

Totally darling Mallory in her little peasant dress! Good job, honey.
