Ri's Projects

We wanted to give Ri some things to work on in order to get some more practice in at sewing, but except for a couple of skirts, our girls really didn't need anymore clothes at the moment.  We asked one of the families at church who had a couple of girls if they didn't mind letting Ri practice by making their daughters a few things.

These are the first couple of dresses she's made for them:

The photo doesn't really do this dress
justice.  It looks much better when
someone is wearing it, but T.Lynn was
already in bed by the time we thought
about pictures.

The little girl that got this one has
curly red hair and I thought this
color would look very good on her.

We were fortunate to be able to use T.Lynn as our model because she's about the same size as they are (the one that gets the purple dress is a little taller) even though they are quite a bit younger.  They are on the tall side and T. is on the small side.

Since these were for practice we supplied all the material - I'd never want to practice on material someone else went to the trouble of buying.  Plus, as I mentioned in a recent post, we have a couple (or maybe 40) extra yards of fabric lying around.

Their mom said she'd have them wear the dresses to church this coming Sunday. I think I'm just as excited to see the girls in them as Ri is.  :D



  1. AWW! They are so pretty!!!!! Ri, you did amazing!

  2. They are beautiful, Ri did a wonderful job. I can just see the second dress on the little girl with red hair she will love it so very much, what a blessing!
