Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope all of you had a fabulous holiday with your loved ones!! I ate far too much, of course! So today is a day of rest and maybe some shopping if I feel up to it. So here are a few pics, well more than a few, of what I made for us to wear on the day of thanks! Enjoy!

Matching dresses for me and Missy Xiu!

This is the same New look 6723 view B. The belt is a bow belt I made from grosgrain ribbon and some white fabric for the bow and it closes with a snap.

Missy Xiu got new look 6309 in view D made with the same fabric as my dress, a linen blend, and grosgrain ribbon.

This is a burda jacket that I made recently, which has a whole story behind it which will be told in another post. Let's just say that it came together without a hitch and then did not fit me. Super sewing fail! But it looks great on my sister with a belt cinched around her waist!

And finally my Lil Lu!!!!!!!! Isn't she so cute!!!!!! I made her this little dress and a matching headband!!!!!!!! She left it on for just enough time to take these pictures and then wailed until we removed it! She crawled around happily after that in her diaper!No appreciation for fashion!

I am thankful for all of the wonderful people in my life, my wonderful  husband, my beautiful children and my awesome sister and beautiful niece, and of course, each and every one of you who have stopped by to read my little blog this year!!!!!!!!!!!!!
