Birthday Dresses

Years ago when my children were young someone gave me a copy of this book, Little Clothes for Little People. Igot it out again to make some dresses for the twins. I used a fine needle cord fabric (see earlier post) I am really please how they have turned out, my daughter asked if I would make some waistcoats too so I decided to make these reversable, putting buttons on each side and making loops out of velvet ribbon. I used very old glass buttons on the black side that I had in my button jar. They are coming to stay tomorrow on their way to visit our other daughter and her family in South Africa. We can have a fitting and if any adjustments are required I have time to do them before their birthday in February.

You continue to amaze me with your talents and your creativity. Your family is so fortunate to have a mom and a grandma like you. The dresses are so adorable!
