Wait. I did read a book. A pretty good book too. The Memory Keeper's Daughter by Kim Edwards. Try it, you'll like it.
Anyway. I was sewing clothes. A bottom and a top.
I saw a tutorial for the Cascading Ruffle Skirt over at Lil Blue Boo, and thought it looked cute and I should give it a go. A few bargain store shirts later, I had this.

(Yes, sometimes I let her pick her own accessories... and clothes.)
Not that that will stop me from making her wear it. I did put the effort in to make it after all.
Then I finished a shirt that has been sitting unfinished for a few weeks now. I love this shirt. It is a pattern from the 01/2011 Ottobre issue. Seriously, this shirt is just as cute as in the magazine as on my wall! Okay, it would look cuter on a little person rather than my wall, but really, let's not be picky here. I am working with an 18month old model, not a 4 year old who can pull a pose.
Is this not a cute shirt! I really love it - I love how not homemade it looks too.
Upper fabric is Scribble-Floral Patch-Grey, and I got it here: Fresh Stash.
