Lazy days’ of Summer

Just wanting to post a couple of pictures of my darling littles and what they have been doing this summer and of course the clothes that I enjoy sewing for them. I first want everyone to see how big the little guy is getting, I have a feeling he is going to be a buffalo in a few months. I don’t sew for him yet, and it is also hard to find a pattern that I like. Does anyone have any cute ideas for little guys?

It has been about 2 weeks since this picture was taken and they have managed to pluck all of the petals off faster than a swarm of Japanese beetles! They are just so darn cute though and it really is hard to say no to them (maybe they are going to be scientists and this silliness is just the beginning of all those experiments that they will be doing or maybe they will be vintners and are practicing picking grapes heehee). All in all they are having fun and keeping busy! Now to the dresses the younger one is wearing  a dress I made for her birthday, the fabric had nursery rhymes on it and I used Simplicity 9784. The older one is wearing fabric that has Little Red Ridinghood on it, I picked it up at Jo-Anne Fabric, so sweet for a little girl with an obsession for Little Red. I used Simplicity 1793, don’t you love the back?
