For those who are curious, here's the pattern information for the two dresses I referenced in the last post.

The dress pattern for the "little girls" is Simplicity Daisy Kingdom 2433 and comes in sizes 3 through 8. I made a size 4 in everything but length as I wanted them long. I could have made a 3 for Lyssie, though (32 pounds) and should have cut the pattern down a bit for Gabbey (20 pounds), but at least they'll get alot of wear out of them! :)

The dress pattern for the "big girls" is Simplicity 9497, the short sleeve variation, and I made both girls a size 12 (with a little extra room for Johanna in the bodice). The pattern comes in sizes 7-14. I added the contrast band and ruffle on the bottom, but otherwise the pattern is as-is. This is the same pattern I used for their winter dresses here.

During a 99-cent sale at Joann's last week I did pick up another REALLY cute pattern for the little girls. It's Simplicity 0351 and is a dress with the sweetest little cap sleeves and two tiers on the bottom. I'd love to whip up a couple of these for the girls!

  1. I'm so impressed with your sewing ability! My Grandma & Mom can both sew just about anything - unfortunately, I never learned how to use a machine! I'm lucky to get buttons sewn back on in the right spot! I know you are (ahem) just a tad bit busy - but when life slows down a bit, you could have a super popular Etsy store!


I welcome any and all comments as long as they are Christ-honoring. Please let me know what you think!
