Just some more adorable.

So you know what’s even cuter than one little pillowcase dress?

Three Pillowcase Dresses!

That’s kindof all I have to say about it. Except that this time I felt confident enough in my sewing skills (or lack thereof) to actually buy fabric.

Although my the fabric amounts / sizing of pillowcase dresses are… iffy… at best. I ended up with WAY more fabric than I needed. Enough to make a reverse dress, too!

But then I realized that my dresses were ridiculously large. Like they probably won’t even fit her next summer they are so ginormous. Not sure why I thought I had a 5 year old when I cut the fabric but whatever. She’ll wear them eventually. And in the meantime I had enough scrap left for a dress that fits her now:

Yay for way over estimating yardage!

Whatever you say, mommy.  I'm pretty sure this is just going to get in my way...

The ties are a bit small on the now dress… I may replace them with ribbons:

Probably not, though. They get the job done.

In other the baby is cute news… check her new trick:

She can climb in and out of a rocking chair! Thrilling, I know. If you want even more thrills there’s a few more videos of it on Flickr. Honestly I’m just crazy excited about this because it’s another step on the path to walking and standing. Yay for walking!!!!
