Simplicity 2246

I have been drawn back to this pattern in the pattern book for a while. Recently on a trip to Joann's when the patterns were $.99 I bought several and this one was in the group. I also bought some light weight denim to make it from but later decided to use this cotton blend. It was a pretty simple dress to make and I like the way it turned out. The only thing I changed about it was changed the sleeves to short sleeves. I also had to take in the shoulders by about 1/2 inch.

This is fabric from Walmart. It has a really nice feel. This pattern is one of the Simplicity Sew Simple patterns. It seems that these run a little big. I will probably take the side seams in a little on this. With the print of the fabric the ruffles at the neckline don't show very well but add a nice touch to the top.

Simplicity 1884

This is Simplicity 1884. The fabric is choclate brown challis that has been in my stash for a few years.

Just wanted to share a picture of part of our family at Easter. The girls and Dylan are wearing things I made. I also made the dress that I am wearing. Sure wish Abby and Wyatt couldhave been in the picture with us.
