I made matching dresses for the girls. I was pretty happy with them, but Lila seems even happier.
I love that girl and I love that smile! I didn’t get any good pictures of Ruby in her dress, but my friend Ryan wants to take some pictures of the girls and I will make sure they have these dresses on for that photo shoot.
I used Simplicity 4610. It is very quick and easy to sew. I first made this dress three years ago for my niece’s 2nd birthday and I remember my sister-in-law telling me that she could still wear it at 3 and a half except the elastic was too tight around her chest. So when sewing these up for my girls, I cut the elastic long and overlapped it so that it fits them now, but as they grow, I can just sneak back in there and let out the elastic. I also took in the straps a good deal, but left the extra fabric tucked under instead of cutting it off so that I can let them out as well.
