MgRG's "Grow with Me" dress

So I am calling this her "Grow with Me" dress because the whole thing is adjustable! I made this out of some old sleep shorts and t-shirts. I liked them so much that I wanted her to be able to wear this through the summer so I made the whole thing adjustable.

The straps cross in the back right now, but can later be tied around her neck halter style. The trim at the bottom can be let out, and the belt at the waist ties in the back. So, yay, a fun spring, summer dress!

St Patrick's Day...

(or as it will now be known... "The St Patrick's Day Trifecta fiasco!")

I was sooo excited about making MgRG a St. Patrick's Day dress. I went and bought the fabric. I realized I could make some others while I was at it, so I made a couple of calls and found two other girls who were in need of one too. All of this would have worked out great if I hadn't decided to make them with Renaissance sleeves and if it had not been the week that Michael had his HUGE Greek assignment due....

I other words, I bit off more than I could chew (hmm, sounds like me.) Well maybe I will learn...

All three dresses got done. I got very little sleep. Michael got less. But all of the girls looked gorgeous in their dresses.

And lets face it, that's what matters, isn't it. :o)
