Don’t even get me started about the number of stitches I had to take out to make these dresses. Or the mistakes I couldn’t fix which I won’t point out to you. But I really LOVED the challenge and am really starting to enjoy sewing (now that I have several attempts projects under my belt). Let me just say however, sewing is NOT cheaper than buying.
I was looking at Gymboree’s spring lines to get ideas for Easter, and asked Kevin, “Is $35 too much to pay for a special Easter dress?” He thought it was, so I volunteered,” Maybe I could make them.” Even though I made a special trip to JoAnn’s when their material was 50% off and I had great coupon, I still spent nearly the equivalent of buying them there!
Not to mention my time is worth at least $25/hour. Right? Of course right.

The dresses are just gorgeous! And the chicks just add to the overall cuteness of these photos.
WOW!!! I had my kids pictures done at a professional studio with bunnies many years ago and they aren't even close to being this good!!! You need to find some contest to enter. Absolutely ADORABLE!!!!
You did a fabulous job! With the clothing and pictures! You should be so proud of yourself! Way to go girlie!! And I agree, you must, MUST frame that one!!
Wonderful looking dresses. I used to make a lot of my own clothes back when it was more economical. Now, I agree that the time factor just doesn't make it cost effective. I love the chicks and kids together.
dresses are cute!! I love to sew, but not always do my things come out great! I always blame the machine! hehe
The one where they are all looking down at the chicks is great would probably even look good in black and white!!
hows the pregnancy going?!
Repeat to yourself…"Smile and pose pictures are nice but candid photos are best at capturing the 'essence' of the subject." 🙂 Without a doubt that photo of the 3 of them looking down at the chicks is the best one and absolutely MUST be framed. Nice job on the girls' dresses, too, Mama! Love ya!
Great job on the dresses, Jessica! You should be really proud.
btw – I shouldn't tell you I bought last years Gymbo dresses on clearance last year for the girls for $7 a piece?!? 🙂
