Catching up on picture sharing

I do sew fairly often though not daily even though you might never realize it since I can be slow to post pictures. Here's just few things that I've photographed, but hadn't posted until now.
The first, is a "Miss Molly" sundress, or should I say Miss O sundress. I love the fabric. It's fun and funky and not our usual pink. I got it from another mama on Sewingmamas. It's a sweet a-line style calf length dress with an unexpected curved bodice. I love how fast it went together and it seems like it will be super versatile for summer. I will probably make her one to use as a coverup for swim lessons. I wonder how it will be in terry cloth?

This next outfit I did awhile back, just as the weather began to warm up. I've had the fabric for ages, it's from Joann's and is actually a nice weight twill probably more suited for fall, but I thought what the hey, I'll use it anyway. I love how the floral and the stripe went together and for once O. actually seemed to enjoy being photographed.

Last, but certainly not least is the shirt I made for M. for his preschool graduation. He picked out the fabric. Why he wanted stripes, I'll never know, but he was absolutely dead set on them. The embroidery on the front is a little graduate cap with 2008 on it.The shirt is my tried and true Kwiksew for Children pattern. Gotta love that Kwiksew. So simple and sweet.

I LOVE the striped collar on your daughter's shirt! It's just gorgeous.

That curved bodice is such a nice look! Her expression in the third pic shows her personality. That striped shirt is cute, but the story behind it is cuter.
