Here’s an attempt to write out a tutorial for a ruffle skirt that I made B.  The material I used is the remnants from the Coffee Date Dress (pattern from The Selfish Seamstress) that I made.  I kept it because I knew I would be able to use it for something.  I’m glad I did!

The Turkey and the Blue Dresses

Glad to have B’s turkey project done and over with.  B is pretty proud of her masterpiece.  The fact that I got the turkey’s fairy wings for 50 cents is something to be proud of too!  By the way, it’s a turkey that’s supposedly disguised as a fairly so it won’t be eaten for Thanksgiving.  🙂


I couldn’t wait for B and Z to wear their blue dress!  Everybody loved it, especially Z’s matching shoes!


I want to take more pictures of the girls showing the dress and shoes.  Just wanted to post this real quick because I just thought that this was a cool picture with the red, yellow and blue.  B and Z’s Colombian papi, L, would be very proud!
