Completed Sewing Projects

DD12's dress is finally finished. I had ambitions of her helping with it, but the dress pattern was so complicated, there was never really a spot where she could help considering she has no sewing experience. At any rate, she picked out the pattern and the fabric. She loves horses so this one-of-a-kind dress is perfect for her. She found fabric with wild horses that we used for the waist and trim on the skirt.
As we were working on the sisters' dresses, my little man (age 5) said he wanted me to make something for him. So we went to the fabric store and he picked out fabric he liked. One was Transformers that I used to make him a pair of shorts and the other was the Chinese dragon fabric that I made a vest of. He liked the vest so much that he thought his best buddy should have one, too. So I made two at once. He especially likes the secret pocket I sewed on the inside of the vest.
