Shopping with My Girls..Leads to This!! WIP

Callie.. 11 yr old grandaughter.. [she is really tiny, so we
are still in the little girls Maw , has to make
them look older for her!!] ..Will make purple piping for the neck
and she has a purple cardigan to wear on Easter day.
Emily - 14 yr old grandaughter Will do the  fuller skirt version

Note: Emily & Callie are sisters... Cindy always tries
to match that when she takes her Easter photos,
 they will look good.. I will share the photos after Easter.
Amy & Ashlee , my 8 yr old twin grandaughters will
be wearing  sailor dresses on Easter day. I found this
vintage pattern on ebay. The dresses will have white
collars, red trim and ties.
When you head to  fabric stores on spring break , and the patterns
are $1.00...  This is what Callie came  home with.
Emily came home with these.

During spring break , Cindy,Emily, Callie and myself went
shopping. We went to look for Easter dresses.. But, before
the day was over... we came home with fabric and patterns.
Amy & Ashlee called and wanted sailor dresses too.
What will Judy be sewing the next 2 weeks?  Easter dresses
for my sweet grandaughters..

Our spring break shopping trip, was really fun.. We went out
to eat, and sit and talked and had a really fun "giggley girls day out".
 We shopped until this"old lady" was give out!! But what a  fun


  1. It sounds like you're going to be very busy! I am especially excited to see the sailor dresses. I want to sew one too!

    1. I agree Dianna... I have a lot of sewing to get done this next 2 weeks.. But, it will be fun.. Children's clothes are so much more frun to sew. love sailor dresses!!1

    2. I love sailor dresses.. I will definitely be sewing alot these next 2 weeks.ha. But it will be fun.

  2. Sounds like such a fun day, Judy! Can't wait til I have "little girls" to shop with! Actually, I am in the process of making some dresses for one of my friend's daughters...she is having a very hard time finding modest dresses for her girls. So...I get to play "gramma" for a little bit! I absolutely love the patterns and fabric you came home with! I especially like the first pattern...too adorable! Can't wait to see the finished always do such a nice job, Maw!


    1. Thank you Laura.. Sewing for the girls is so fun.. And we had so much fun hunting the patterns.
      I so understand the "hard time" finding modest dresses for the girls.. That is why, I sew so much for mine..
      When the mama's take Easter photos of them wearing these, I will post them.

  3. How gorgeous it must be fun shopping with the girls choosing the fabric etc...looks all very exciting. I can't wait to see them. I'm sewing a couple of little dresses too haven't posted yet though...
