My First Shirt Dress!!

I am just giddy about how cute this dress turned out. It was a girl’s blouse, size extra-large, and now it’s an adorable 18 month old dress! I’m just learning how to sew, I still have lots to learn. Juniper was so cute, she kept putting things in the belt like it was a pocket.…

Craft Area Cleanup!
