Book Report Dress

Aurora and I are working on a very exciting, Halloween themed, multi-day science project, so while that’s under construction, I thought I would share a few more sewing projects that I made with my mother in law, Anna, over the summer. I am really enjoying sewing kids clothes, not only can they be sentimental and beautiful, but they’re also immensely practical!

I haven’t taken the dive yet and made anything for myself, it seems much more complicated fitting and adult body… maybe someday I’ll get brave enough.
