All Hail… Prince Phillip

A week or two ago I asked K what she’d like to be for her friend Alexa’s upcoming princess party. She said “a turtle”. I said “That’s not a prince or a princess”. Her next request? “A karate guy.” Nope, K, that’s not part of the assigned category. Please select a prince or princess. Expressing…

All Hail Princess Aurora

If you were a reader around this time last year, you may remember Adrianna’s foray into knit princess dresses. She’s done Belle and Snow White.

Spotty Dotty Comfy Dress

I’ve had this spotted fabric for at least a year. I just checked on a link and it’s gone. I love it and was waiting for something simple to do with it. After examining the construction of a shirt of K’s, I decided I could easily turn it into a dress.  This one needed to…

Big Girls’ Romper in Knit

I just wanted to write a quick post to show you that my big girl romper tutorial can be used with knit fabric too. Actually, this is the first version I made, since knits are more forgiving than wovens and are an easy way to test the fit first.  Also, I had this print sitting…
