It's a dress...it's a shirt....it's a dress...

We have a great library just down the street and around the corner.  They have a wonderful Storytime teacher and the best librarians around.  SOOO different from the library of my childhood where whispering was frowned on.  Here everyone talks in a normal voice and children are ENCOURAGED!!  They have computers with all kinds of learning games for kids to play on, and if you need a book they don't have - they will get it for you:)  The librarians who work on Storytime day know us well.  One of the librarians is fabulous at finding a book you are looking for.  She knows those shelves like the back of her hand:)  A few weeks ago she pointed out the book below to me.  It was new to the library and she thought I might like to take a look at it. Told you they know us well!!  I took a 4 or 5 week 'look'.

My birthday is coming up soon, like as in 'Saturday soon', and I would love to have my own copy of this.  hint hint ;)

If you've ever wanted to do any of the projects that were featured in any of the M*rtha magazines this is the book for you.  They are all here.
There is a pattern cd in the back.  Print away!

Have any old dress shirts of your husbands that you just love but they are getting worn around the collar??  Turn them into dresses for the little girl(s) in your life.

(sorry about the unedited pictures, I didn't take time for Picassa this morning.)

Little Sister loves to pose!
Arm detail.  I, of course, can't seem to follow a pattern exactly:)

Don't sew??  Send me a shirt and I will make one for the little girl in your life!!
 $25 each, you supply the shirt, bias binding, and thread.

Cute, but I'm a little overwhelmed (jealous?) at the thought that you are taking on MORE sewing while I am still plugging away at my list. My fabulous MIL brought me some Amy Butler fabric in a great summer shade of lime green and I just stare at it mournfully. Maybe I'll get to it by fall. Poor poor me. Can you tell I'm discouraged today? :)

I was just wondering yesterday what you would really love to have for your birthday!! Love the pics of the girls of course! A LITTLE overwhelmed doesn't even begin to say it for me! I like to sew, but do not love it!
