My summer sewing is going to be clothes for me. I need some new pieces and I hate shopping for RTW, it never fits right, or is just wrong.

So this will be the summer of skirts (S.o.S? I see a sew-along hehe).


I am so jealous of how incredibly creative and frugal you are. I really wish that I had that kind of talent. Unfortunately for me things don't tend to keep my attention for very long.


I only wish I could sew!


Wonderful, wonderful picture and outfit! This really makes me want to sew again...


Very Cute! I've only started to dream about all the clothes I would like to make for my girls this summer. I haven't actually started yet.

This is a perfect summer set! The colors are great and it looks like it fits her PERFECTLY! Good job mom!


My youngest just picked a pillowcase in hopes of getting a dress, that's so funny. I think we're on the same page. Make sure you post it all, it's going to be beautiful.


Very cute outfit! Do you sew all the girls' clothes?


Gorgeous little outfit. Great use of a pillow case too!


Cute little outfit and congrats on being so frugal. I'm working on a short sleeve buttondown shirt at the moment. I also have another shirt and a skirt in the works. All for myself, too. At some point I have a kimono to make too.

so cute!


Such a cute little outfit! And for only 75c ...Bargin :-)


Very, very cute outfit.


Holy cow, that's terrific. An adorable, comfortable little outfit, under a dollar. You can't beat that!


This is really cute! I can never find good pillowcases at thrift shops or garage sales. They are always really rough material, or they are stained or have holes. Have you seen this tutorial? I made one and it was really easy. I salvaged the pocket from the front of the shirt and used it on the front of the dress. Total cost was 25 cents for the shirt at a garage sale, plus a little elastic and thread.
I am working on something made from dishtowels I got at BigLots yesterday. We will see how that goes....


That's absolutely gorgeous!!
