I would like to know where you found the people designs and I thnk it had an earth design. I need to finish DD's dress for international day..
Thank you so much in advance.
I didn't make the dress but I think the fabric might be from Alexander Henry from the Good Earth collection.

She is such a doll! I love the combination of dots for the ruffles.

I should add that this dress was inspired by both Teresa and Jeanne's Cinderella dresses . . . sort of a mishmash of the two. . .
The dress came out great. If you're concerned about the pink showing through, maybe you could make a 'slip cover' for the petti. I'm thinking just a simple slip (full or half) in plain white (like Kona cotton) that would be worn over the petti under the dress.

That was KIRA! It was BEAUTIFUL! She digitized the children that are stitched around the hem of the dress. She used the friends around the world fabric that is very hard to find now.
KIRA - WHERE ARE YOU?

I hope you're able to take a little time before you have to begin looking for a new place.

Kirsta is taking it really hard. She was so close to my Mother. Mom always said her Grandchildren were her greatest Joy. It would hit hard anyday, but I keep thinking of the things I said we were going to do. She really wanted to see the movie Tooth, but was too sick earlier to go. I told her it was out on DVD and I was going to get it for her for Mothers Day. Why does his bother me so much? I plan on going to buy it and bury it with her.

I started to do some craft shows in the fall, for extra income, and to do something with all the "stuff" I make on my new embroidery machine. But I'm not really feeling it now, she used to go with me to keep me company.

But my poor nephew. Mom's oldest grandchild. He's 21, and he and his girlfriend bought a house at Thanksgiving, got engaged at Xmas. They decided to get married now, since he's going to be deployed to Afghanistand for 6 months. They get married on Friday. Mom told the Doctors they had to hurry and fix her up, she had a wedding to go to.

While sitting with Mom in her last hours, I saw her twice reach out inthe air. I think she was reaching for the light, God's hand, or maybe she saw my Dad? I know we all go sometime. But I thought we had another 20years with her. My Gmother was 93 when she passed, and her mother was 105. But I know that Mom is now pain free.

Thank you for all the hugs. I'll need them in the next weeks.

KIRA - WHERE ARE YOU?
Thanks. I need those kids. I have the good earth fabrics for the dress and want to put those cute kids around the bottom of the dress. Alexander Henry's kids are tiny and I am using those on the top of the dress around the earth.

The next few months is really going to be hard. I lived with her, because neither one of us could afford to live alone. She loved this house bought it with my Dad when we were all kids. I am really sad to leave here and try to find a place on my own, when I get comfort from being near the things she loved. But, I am trying to take comfort in knowing that it is her wishes that the house be sold and divided among my sisters and myself. She wouldn't want any of us to try and keep the house when we can't afford it.

I wish the Doctors were more attentive to her complaints so her last few months would have been more comfortable for her. But she's put on her dancing shoes and with Dad in heaven now.

Thank you for listening to me. I am hoping everyone really appreciates their Mother on this special day.
I am so very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.

And most of you have seen this top before (I made it a year and a half ago or so? for our trip that we had to cancel.) So she never got a chance to wear it and now it's too short for a dress, so I made capris to go with it. thank goodness for keeping scraps! I used the very last of that stripe fabric to finish these!

So, so cute! Love everything; the cindy dress is gorgeous! I have to warn you though, I'm also planning an audrey for CM's; I don't want you to think I'm just copying ya- I'm planning to use MM plain jane fabrics, though; so they won't be the same- hope we're not both going to CM's the 12th LOL. Otherwise I'll change mine since I haven't made it yet. We'll be there the 5th-13th and I'd love to meet up y'all if we can- and the rest of us, too- I think there's a couple more going around our time

I thought I would post this as many of you will relate. Gianna is 7 and where we live (LI) customs are rare at best, and as she has told me many times NOT cool for school. Hairbows have also been a no no for the past year

Gianna suprised me with a writing piece she worked on in school and an even bigger surprise was that she had entered a mother's day contest in the local newspaper and part of her work was published in the paper (she did not win-oh well). Anyway....her is the surprising and heartwarming part...she wrote "My Mom is very talented. She makes some of my clothes. Once she made me an Alice in Wonderland outfit. My mother loves me at every moment." Lately it has felt like she was embarrased of the customs and sewing that I try to push her into wearing so when I read this it really made my day. DH tells me see I told you she doesn't hate the stuff you make Let's just say he really has a way with words

Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!!

And finally - her very first petti!

Beautiful work as always Lori! I love all of the outfits! So glad you started sewing again after your "vacation" from it! Your work is just beautiful!

Love the Cinderella dress! The fabric you used is just gorgeous! Do you remember where it came from or who the designer was? I just loved it! Is it a cotton or a satin?

That dress you are working on is really hard to get over the head and shoulders so I have started hemming the back about halfway down and using a button at the top with a loop of elastic to close it. Here is a pic of one of her dresses from that pattern...she is soooo little then I can't find one of her wearing it...I wasn't good with modeling pics back then.
Oh wow, thanks for posting this!! I actually haven't even had a chance to lay the pattern out and cut it out yet--it's been crazy-busy with DH's command functions for the past three days (and then Mother's Day today--we drove to NOLA after church to surprise my mom). I'm trying to visualize how you did the back--from a construction-wise POV. Your dress came out darling!

I neglected to multi-quote, unfortunately, so forgive my blanket "WOW, LOOKS GREAT!" to all the wonderful outfits.

Sally, I am very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. I know too well how hard it is to lose a parent especially before we are ready. Have peace in knowing that she is in a better place now. I know it is hard and will be for a while but it does get easier. I'll be praying for you and your entire family.

My DD is a Marie nut. She carries her shell of a plush Marie everywhere. (It is hard to keep a white cat clean. There isn't any stuffing left in it.)

I had to make a Marie by hand. Not too easy. Please excuse her hair. I think Marie played w/ it when she was putting the dress on.


If you get it, let me know if it works. I would love more Marie things for DD. They aren't easy to find, not even at WDW.

You're too funny! We're going to CM's on the 13th! So we're good there, LOL! Actually, I'm not even sure she'll wear the Audrey to CM's - I'm making her a minnie dress to match my minnie dot top that I made, so we may wear those to CM's. . . although with the apron, the Audrey would be really cute at CM's. . . not sure what to do now??

Thanks so much for the kind words! I'm glad to be sewing again, too! Both fabrics are from JoAnn's - the main fabric was from their spring line and the peplum fabric was in the same area as the Debbie Mumm fabric - it was from a wedding line, I believe. Not much help, I know - sorry!
