Well that is what little girls are made of! i saw this pattern over at Made by Rae. i made it last night in less than two hours. it's was very easy to assemble and i made it with scrap fabric so i feel like it was free! i have a friend due to have a girl next month so ill be putting this in the mail for her! ill also be crossing my fingers that some of my other pregnant friends will also have girls because i am just dying to make another one of these!

One of my girlfriends is having a baby next month!!
her shower is this weekend and i cant wait!
she doesnt know if she is having a boy or a girl so she is planning on doing the nursery in khaki and white and she will add blue or pink after the baby is born.
i found a great khaki and white zebra stripped pattern and added white chenille and a khaki white poka dot fabric. not very baby, but definitely fits my trendy friend!
Ruffle shirts are really in lately.
recently i needed to buy a suit and needed something for under it. so in a panic and short on time i got this cute tank with a little ruffle in the front from ann taylor. as soon as i got home i was mad at myself. yes the shirt was cute, but for the love of G i could have made that thing for less than the $28 i paid!
so i saw this great tutorial on Adventures in Dress Making
i had a shirt from old navy $7 that i had never worn
cut the sleeves
hemmed it into a t-shirt and ruffles with the sleeves
