Summer is Coming For Two Baby Girls

Summer is slow getting here in the Pacific Northwest this year, but I am anticipating some sunshine with outfits I made for two grand daughters, both size 12 months. I was fond of this warm pink cotton print and had just enough to make a dress and bloomers for each.
Eleanor will get this sun dress and hat.
Butterick Pattern 6033.
The dresses and hat were lined with a soft white on white cotton print from JoAnn's.
I was excited to try out buttonholes on my new Brother sewing machine!
Anna is wearing a sun bonnet made from Simplicity Pattern 5813.
Instead of lace I made a fabric ruffle.
Her dress is a vintage pattern, Simplicity 8897.
Love those buttonholes!
Now bring on that sunshine!

Kristin, I love my Brother! Well, my real brother and the sewing machine. I got the mother's day special on for $150. Unbelievable number of functions for that price! So far it is running very well. NO complaints other than the light. Mine has 60 stitches including 7 buttonholes and embroidery stitches. It came with a hard cover and an extended quilting deck and quilting foot and walking foot. Truly Amazing!
