Carnival Dresses

My Daughter and Son-in- law took their sweet little girls to the our hometown carnival, so you know what their Mimi had to do? Yep, I had to make them carnival dresses, can’t go to a carnival unless you are wearing a carnival dress. I absolutely love the way they turned out, my daughter said even the carnival workers thought they were cute.

Gianna’s dress was made from Simplicity 1793, very easy peasy pattern to make unless you don’t care about working with zippers.

As I look at this picture I can see the “baby chubbiness” is melting away and her little arms don’t look like chubby caterpillars anymore. So sad! I hope mine starts melting soon, heehee.

june 2013 055[1]Time to say goodbye and hope you enjoyed this post and it will inspire you to sew your own sweet carnival dress for that special little in your life.
