Owen is now a first grader, he has lost two teeth in the last two weeks!  His hockey has started up again, so we have been busy going to the rink, too.


Then there is Nora, my big PRESCHOOLER!!  She started last week and is really loving it!!  I sewed her first day of school dress and I love how it turned out.  Its the Little Lizard King Sweetheart dress.  I found some cute school themed fabric and coordinates and wanted to show it off, but I only had a half yard of each, this pattern worked really well, I just had to make a hem band and extended it up toward the skirt a bit.  DSC_0558 2014-09-09 15.11.41

It is very twirly, which was her request!  Even Pete the Cat approves!

We bought some new sneakers for back to school which didn’t really go with her dress, so on day 2 she wore her Frozen sneakers with this new Love Notions pattern, the Hazelwood.  This is a flowy, high / low top with an optional hood.  I love hoods!  Love Notions has also released a new leggings pattern which is FREE, and they pair so well together!  Nora loved that she could twirl, and she loved the Frozen fabric.

The LoveNotions Playdress was our choice for day 3, it looked cute with her jacket

On Friday she wore the GYCT Rival Raglan dress, these 3/4 sleeves are perfect for fall.  DSC_0438
