Girly Goodness

I'm done sewing for me, so it's back to sewing for the girls!  Mallory loves her striped overalls, but they were too small so I cut off the legs and added a skirt.  She loves it and has worn it everyday this week (with breaks to wash it!) 

Abby was invited to a birthday party, so she chose a pillowcase top, denim purse, and book as her gift.  Thankfully, the top and bag sewed up in about 2 hours total, so it was an easy job.  I love the big bow on this dress, so I used this tutorial from NaNa Kid Boutique for the top.   I had enough fabric to make a 2nd, shorter top that works as a mini-dress for Mally or top for Abby.  She can be matchy-matchy with her friend :)

I found this tute for the bag.  Cute and so easy!  I was in a hurry to get Abby to the party, so I didn't get a pic of the bag, but the jeans had embroidery on the front and back pockets so I didn't need to add any detail.
