My Daughter's Skirt & Granddaugter's Dress

You know, my oldest daughter sews and her 'mojo' has been in full force this summer. She's a high school teacher and has been churning out quite a few things since she's been on vacation. Here are a couple of projects from last weekend. Sorry the pictures aren't real clear, especially the one where I cut off her head! My granddaughter's dress is made in an eyelet fabric from her mother's extensive collection. She applied a sequinned trim to the waistline. Not sure which pattern she used for this dress, but she did a wonderful job on it.
My daughter's skirt is a fabric she found at Walmart. She said it was $1.50/yard. The trim on the hemline was found there too. But she added the rhinestones! I think the wide rick-rack came from Joann's. It's very cute!

The dress is gorgeous.

You have a great blog. I'd love for you to come and visit my blog. I just made a Vintage Vogue Original 1944 Design, V2858. On the previous page you'll find a dress I made from an original 1974 pattern that I found in an antique store. I call that post The Lady in Lavender. And lots of other things in between. Hope you enjoy.
