LOVE the dresses Beth! You are a whiz at that sewing thing, was the pattern hard? I'm thinking about dusting off the 'ole sewing machine and giving it a whir again. It is so gratifying to see something you actually made. What a joy for your girls to have something handmade by mama. Great job Beth! P.S. I know I'm not aunt Kari, but I liked them anyway. :)

Thanks, Heidi, I couldn't have said it better myself! Love the fabrics Beth and the way you put them together! Love the pics! Thanks! ~~~Aunt Kari

Heidi, The pattern was one Aunt Kari had used and I liked so purchased. It is very easy and easy to modify for varying sizes. I would love to let you barrow it any time. Happy I may have inspired you to dust off your machine. The trick is finding the time to sew. You are so right about the gratification it brings!

Kari, I am glad you enjoyed the pictures. Funny thing, when I was shopping for the fabric I was thinking about all the cool prints you have mixed together. You are an inspiration when it comes to thinking outside the box. You inspired the stripe/flower/solid choice.
