Boys Patriotic Shirt

I made my very first boy's shirt. It took me awhile to figure out how to attached the collar. I was following the instructions that came with the pattern but it seems too hard for me to follow. I guess ESL is my problem hahaha. But I came up with the idea to find an old boy's shirt and just take a look at how it put together and it took me 2 minutes to figured out to put the collar together. I read the instruction and trying to follow it it took me maybe 3 hours :(.
aw this shirt cost me $ time is priceless!
I used butterick 3475 size 5 for pattern.

Yellow and Black Flowers on White Easter dresses

I made couple dresses again today. I used the same pattern from the previous sewing post. I used simplicity 2432 and the pattern the I made from my daughter old dress.

I used the pattern that I made with this dress.

 Simplicity 2432 and modified the front bodice. I added ruffles in the middle area for change a little bit.

She loves it but she said she need a pocket too :)

Old Town Scottsdale

It was a beautiful day today. My friend Melody and I went strolling around the Old Town Scottsdale. It's been awhile since the last time I visited this place and thank God that I had a chance to come back again. Thanks to Melody because she grew up in this place, and became my tour guide. I had a great time with her company.

Make sure you visit Alida's website and check all the cool stuff that she have today. I am joining her new series of Calling all Kids link party.

I made another dress for my youngest daughter. I used the same fabric from this post. I just want both of my girl have matching dresses but not the same designs. I just don't know what to call this dress. I made the pattern from my daughter's old dress that was given to her by her Aunt.
I took me forever to make this since I don't know what to do with a limited fabric. Plus I was praying that this dress size will be just her size. I made so many dresses for my girls and when I finished it never fit for them because I did not add an allowance when I cut it. So, It was either too short or too narrow and won't fit.
 Anyway, she loves it!
I add some pockets. I love the ruffles.
 I didn't realized that my daughter is taller than I thought. I thought I add more allowance at the bottom of her dress. Well, I still can add it later though.

 This is the dress that I made the pattern from. This dress now is too short on her.
Love the outcome!

Have a great one everyone and thanks for stopping by.

Spring dress

Pattern I used is Simplicity 2432
I modified it a little bit since I don't know how to read patterns.
 It should have ribbon on the front bodice .

 Well with ribbon or not she still loves it.
