New dresses for Elaine and baby Kayla

So, as long as we're in the matching dresses phase, how about a set for Elaine and her little cousin Kayla?  We met Kayla for the first time a couple of weeks ago when her parents came to visit.  So good to see all of them!

I'm in love with this Melody Miller ruby star fabric - and just eked out the pattern in both sizes for the girls.  The pattern is a NO CLOSURE pull-on dress called bohemian babydoll by Elegance & Elephants.  

Here's a detailed shot of the bugs and pom-pom trim.... and the girls in their matching dresses! 

Thanks for coming to visit us!  xoxoxo

New dresses for Elaine and her friend!

Lainey picked out some knit feather fabric in a couple of different colorways and I made her and a dear friend matching maxi dresses for Summer. 

The best part about them aside from matching, is the cris-crossed cut-out back.  Which you can't see in the picture, of course!!!  Makes it a little tricky to put on - but adorable! 

The dress pattern is Malibu by modkid and can be found here.  Simple pattern with great instructions, and made really easy with fold over elastic!  I should probably make a few more of these... it's hard to find great knits though.
