Ta Da!




UPDATE: As requested, here is a picture of Abby in the new dress. Also here is Reese in the pants outfit that is a hand-me-down from Abby. I made the dress to match so they would have a matching outfit. The pants outfit I bought when Abby was 1.
I finally assembled the dress I smocked on the cruise. Abby wore it for the first time today. Luckily, it's pretty big so it will fit her next year too. It's time to start on Spring...since it takes me so long!

So darn cute!!! I love it that you made it to match the outfit that you handed down to Reese. It looks like you're not having problems with Abby not smiling for pics anymore:)

Absolutley beautiful! I am so impressed with your work. What do you do with them after the girls outgrow them? They are so filled with love it would be ashamed for them to just sit in drawers... but then the next one may enjoy wearing them - as long as it isn't a boy ... hehe

Aww, she looks awfully cute in it! Thanks for the update.
