New Sewing Pattern, FAITH Double Layer Dress Top sewing pattern, and Sew Forum!

I am not much of a forum girl and not because I don't like them..... it is more of trying to find the time to read and comment and just participate in the discussions. AllBrands told me about their forum and I have to say I love it! It is such a friendly place to visit and also see what others are sewing! It is called SewForum! Check it out if you haven't already!

I am busy working on SewSensible's Applique' Apron Skirt! It is coming out so cute! Ok, I know I may be a little biased!! There will be options: optional bow tie and of course you could just use another coordinating fabric and make the skirt without an applique and it comes out just as cute. Yesterday I started making one using a sewing machine applique from YouCanMakeThis! This is for all those that do not have embroidery machines. I use a little more length on my zig zag to give it more of a handmade look and also because I just am not a great sewing machine applique'-er! I love the way it is looking. I will finish it today and post pictures tonight hopefully.

Here is another outfit I made for our local AllBrands store. I used SewSensible's FAITH Double Layer Dress Top and Boutique Bottoms to match. This is definitely more for the Spring but adding a peasant top underneath will work great for the fall and winter months! And it actually criss crosses in the back but this one was a little too big for Grace so I tied it a little tighter making it hide the criss cross look.

My daughter wore this same outfit Friday with a knit long sleeve shirt. Let me see if I have a decent picture to send you...
