Back-to-School Sewing Tutorial Giveaway



Mary Ashley and Emma went back to school this year in dresses made especially for the first day.

 




This ruffled neckline dress pattern from Etsy designer Whimsy Couture looks cute in this Keepsake Calico print, Apples + Pears, with pink polka dot trim. Seeing the girls dressed up for school -- Emma starting kindergarten and Mary Ashley now a second-grader -- I reflect on how quickly they have grown.






Perhaps I was so drawn to the Apples + Pears fabric because I remember them wearing these ruffled pants to preschool. At 2 and 4, they were the best of friends.






Sunny fall days were perfect for picnicking in the park with my sweet girls.






I am thankful that at 7 and 5, Mary Ashley and Emma are still as sweet as can be ...







And still the best of friends.



Whimsy Couture has graciously offered a back-to-school giveaway: one sewing tutorial of your choice from Whimsy Couture. To enter, leave a separate comment for each entry you choose:


(1) Friend Whimsy Couture on facebook here.
(2) Sign up for e-mail updates at the Whimsy Couture blog.
(3) Follow A Little Loveliness on Networked Blogs here.
(4) Like A Little Loveliness Blog on facebook here.



I will announce the winner next week. Along with many of our friends in the path of Hurricane Irene, Whimsy Couture has lost electricity. Our prayers are with all who have been affected by the storms, as well as our students, teachers and administrators heading back to school.
