Sneak Peek of Two Little Blessing Dresses

We're having so much fun picking out all the details of these little dresses. I thought I would show you the process of making the diamond grid.  I just drew it on the back, with pencil, first. 
 Next, I ironed the lines I would be sewing on.  I thought I would sew all one direction first and then all the other direction, second...but I misjudged how much it would take to cut out two bodices.  Learn as you go!  : )

 I made these three little roses, below, but we're still deciding on that. 
 My younger daughter, Sara, took these photos of the little sisters recently.  Great job, girl!!  : )

                                                       Sweet Dreams!

The dresses will be beautiful....just like the babies are! Where has the time gone ML? I have so much to fill you in on and I've missed your posts and I've been almost nonexistent on my blog. I was not in your town this winter for a variety of reasons. I promise to email you!
Please show us the finished dresses :D

OMGosh girlfriend, what gorgeous dresses for such gorgeous girls!!!! That sewing is something I would have attempted maybe a 100 years ago, but it would drive me crazy in my old age now.

Your daughter did an amazing job with the photography, too.....wow.

Hugs,
Meri
