School Clothes


School starts soon and my grandgirl needs to look spiffy for her first days of first grade. Together we went to the fabric store and selected the patterns, selected the fabric, and I sat by my sewing machine for a few days solid like a good gramma. She now has five unique things for school.

The girl has taste! The poodle skirt was the first to be selected, then the minty green one. The purple dress is a jumper...the model didn't have an undershirt. Looks a little funny but still cute.

I can't believe what a big girl she is now and her grandma did a great job on her fashions!

Since I now have a great granddaughter, I need to start sewing some clothes too. Where should I start? What patterns do you use, which are easiest? I love all the stuff you do.

Darling all the way around! The patterns are perfect, the fabric wonderful, but most of all the young model is cuter than any button you sewed on! Really, truly adorable!!!
