Through this, I haven't been able to sew very much. In the beginning, when she was in ICU, we pretty much lived at the hospital. Now, we go twice a day for a couple of hours at a time. It is weird because I went to sewing pretty much EVERY day to hardly sewing at all. I did, however, make some time to sew up some outfits for the 4th of July and I would love to give you pattern reviews on them. So, here we go!
Our first item is the Boo Designs Skater Skirt. I think this is an amazing pattern. If I had this pattern during the school year, you would have seen a ton of these. You can cut and sew this in less than an hour if you use the elastic waist option. This is the pattern picture of the elastic waist version.
The pattern actually comes with several options, including some super cute suspenders. Here is our 4th of July version.
Our next stop on the Patriotic Parade is the Little Lizard King Blue Ribbon Dress. The size range on this is 12 mo - girls 14. It is a super cute pairing of a knit bodice with woven skirt. Here is the pattern picture.

Our next stop is in Hailey Bugs Closet for a fun 4th knit upcycle using the Perfect Puzzle Set Dress. The size range for this pattern is 12m-girls sz 12. Here is the pattern picture

Our final stop was a super cute, super easy sew from Cole's Creations. It is the Katy Panda Knit Dress. Since this was my first time sewing this one up, I just used two basic fabrics and I just love the fit. It also comes with the option to make panda, kitty and several other "faces" on the dress. The size range is pretty impressive too 1/2- girls 16. Here is the pattern picture
And here is our "Fireworks" version
Super fast sew that was super cute. I have been having to take the kids to stay at my husband's work in the mornings while my dad and I visit my mom at the hospital and she got several compliments on this one. There are several piles on my knit stack designated to make more of these with.

Hopefully, I will be seeing more of you!
