Father-Daughter Dance 2018

Hello everyone!! Happy Saturday!! The time has come again, for the father-daughter dance. This year, the theme is Paris, which made my daughter so very excited, because all she ever talks about is being a famous pastry chef in Paris. Even her room is Paris themed.

Being the little fashionista that she is, my daughter sent me on a mission to make her a dress for the dance as I do every year, except this year she sent a picture from Pinterest for me to use as inspiration for her dress.

I decided that I would make her dress by doing a pattern hack. I used Burda Kids 9379 for the bodice. I did however, draft my own sleeves because I wanted to create a long sleeve puffed sleeve for the dress.

I also used Mccalls 7112 for the tulle skirt of the dress.

The dress turned out beautifully, and she was so happy with the finished project, which made me happy as well. Now, off to the dance she goes with the first man she ever loved, her daddy. Her dad told her that she was beautiful and that he was proud to escort her to the dance, and that made my heart so happy to see them have moments like this.

To top off her outfit, I made a necktie for her and purchased a beret to complete her look.

Thank you guys for taking the time to read my blog, I truly appreciate it.

Fireworks in the Sky

Hello everyone. To all of those who call America home, Happy Independence day!!

One of the things that I do every holiday, is create a themed look for my kids, and today is no exception. Often times you would see items that I make for my daughter, but my son told me that he wants me to make something for him this time around. I have always made things for my daughter because I am better in making girl’s clothing, but at my son’s request I decided to give it a try, and it turned out great. I must say that this is one of my favorite things that I have ever made for my kids.

Pattern Used: My Daughter’s Dress was made using McCalls 6878, and my son’s shirt was made using Burda 9792.

Fabric Used: I found two firework patterns at my local Joanns that caught my eyes.

Was the pattern easy to use?: I had a bit of a struggle with the pleating on the dress pattern, but once I got a handle on it, everything else went smoothly. The Burda shirt pattern was very easy to understand and follow.

Would you use the patterns again?: I am definitely going to use both patterns over and over again.

I love sewing for myself and others, but sewing for my little ones bring out the best in me. Thank you all for reading my blog, please like, comment, and share. Please continue to scroll for pictures.
