Make it Monday

I hope that everyone had a wonderful Easter. I know that I did. And the long weekend gave me an opportunity to get a couple of great outfits done. I probably would have done more but you know there comes a time when you've just got to spend some quality time with your family.

But I want to tell you what I made over the weekend. I made a pair of cute little pair of  blue jeans from a Liberty Jane pattern. The little details in this pattern is what makes them so cute. And there is so much room for creativity in it. I did the pockets plain with just basic topstitching but I'm thinking about adding some trim to it the next time. I think that adding some lace to the pockets would be really cute.

And then the other outfit that I did was another pattern from Kotton Candy doll fashions. I made the Sweet Tea Summer dress. I picked out two coordinating materials. For the bodice, shoulder straps and the ruffle, I picked out a piece of cotton material with blue circles and stars on a brown background. And for the dress part, I picked out a floral print with pink, blue, and brown flowers on a off white background. I also accented the bodice with two pink heart buttons.

And of course all of these items are available for sale on my Etsy shop. Except the doll of course!
