LBB Dresses

I've become that person that my friends "donate" to ... whenever they are purging their closets! Recently I "scored" some super soft tees from Em because she wanted to see "what I'd do w/ them." She also gave me back the bridesmaids dress she wore in  my wedding six years ago (again, to see what I could come up w/)!

I've been thinking on those tees for a while now, and finally decided to go back to my old trusty dress pattern from Lil Blue Boo (the Sienna patttern) and made the girls some new dresses. I love this pattern and have made more of these dresses than I've blogged about! But here's one, the sorority tee upcycle.

Their dresses are different styles but the colors coordinate - just like I like them! Audrey got a ruffle b/c she is so tall and I needed the added length (someone in Trader Joe's seriously thought she was FIVE the other day ... right! She is only 3.5 yo ... but as sassy as a 16 yo).

She picked her coordinating pom poms for her pig tails. I was impressed with her matching! ;)
Izzie got the cool flower print tee (a GAP tee that I loved and wore a while, until it developed a hole on the front!) mixed with Em's beige shirt. The front and back are different color blocks.
Izzie's sleeves are do not have a folded hem ... they are just finished with a zig zag stitch and I'm pleased with how it turned out.  I used a tank top for the beige, so I didn't have existing sleeves to work with and didn't have enough of the tank body to use.

Yes, she too promptly removed her shoes; it's a thing they do.

We were at a birthday party for these pictures and all my kids (and Trey down there) wanted to do was play in this nasty mud puddle (it smelled like rotten fish). Naturally when I asked for a picture, they gathered around said puddle. Grrr.

When I asked for a picture, they all snugged together with their arms around each other and said "cheese!". They are trained professionals, for sure.

This ^^ is my favorite picture from the day. That ball + that puddle = trouble.

Final picture from the party, I cut off here because this is where I became a referee between my children and the desserts. You see that cake right there? (Audrey licked it) and Izzie? She helped herself to a very large selection of homemade cake pops! It was a fun day for all of us! ;)

These are adorable. It's so hard to shop dresses, especially for young kids.
