Cutie Little Bonnets

I'm trying to squeeze in one last bonnet wearing summer for my 2 year old.  By the age of 3 I'm not sure how cute it would be anymore!   So I let her pick out the fabric, and she could hardly wait for me to finish it.  It sews up in about an hour even with a toddler running around "helping".  I used this pattern: little betty it's the second and third I've made, and I love each one!

The Kimono Dress

Dresses, dresses, I have been sewing dresses.  And for the first time in a long time they are for me!  I was in need of some nice flowey sundresses and decided to make them.  I bought one at the beginning of the summer but haven't worn it because I don't really like it/weird fabric fiber content.

I designed the first dress over half a year ago? And made my first one out of a kimono!  Therefore this dress is nicknamed or called The Kimono Dress.

 This original one has pockets which is nice, but I didn't continue to do that in the other dresses to cut down on bulk.  It's cinched at the waist with a knit belt.



Kimono Dress #2 is made from my beautiful collection of fabric I brought back from India last year.  I'm happily and finally cutting it up to use! (instead of just looking at it all the time in admiration) 

 Kimono Dress #3 is made from these pants: 

These were also brought back from India I wore them as part of an outfit.  To get the most use out of them here, I thought making a dress from them would be most fitting.

Ta Da!

Dress #4 is made from seemingly neutral fabric

Zoomed version:) Perfect for summer!

And to top it all off, my friend kindly encouraged me to get labels made!  Such a simple process and I am thrilled with how they turned out.  Clean and simple.  It beats rubber stamps or drawing with fabric marker which I tired earlier on in my sewing life.
