Photo Shoot!

Today we had a photo shoot! Here are some pictures of the finally finished "Cherry Blossom"!

The cuffs:


And the sash in the back:

I can honestly say I'm 100% satisfied with the way this project turned out. The Princess likes it, too. She'll be wearing it to school tomorrow!

While we had the camera out and the day was so beautiful, we decided to take some pics of some other recently completed projects.

Flower Power:

Golden Sands (Top):


And McCalls 5306 (Top and Shorts):

Now I'm off to the cutting table- which is really just my kitchen table. I made an unexpected trip to Joann's yesterday (Hancock's was closed when I got there- their loss!) and I picked up a cute print to make a skirt for me, along with something for the Princess, and her brother, the Prince. The Frog Prince! I'm hoping to cut out a couple of things this afternoon that I can sew on in bits and pieces throughout the week.

The Princess looks adorable in your Cherry Blossom outfit...and the other outfits as well. Cherry Blossom is too cute, though.

I just found your blog through Paula's link list. I LOVE the way you mixed your fabrics on this cherry dress. And the stripes are perfection. Lots of fun!

Thanks for all the kind comments, y'all. I must admit I was a little worried that Cherry Blossom might be a little bit over the top. Thanks for the reassurance! It feels so great to have this project completed since it's been tumbling around in my head for so long.

All the outfits for your daughter are gorgeous. I like the little touches of red on the pants cuffs, it really brings the outfit together.

I am tagging you. I hope you do not mind. This is a book tag, details are on my May 7 post.
