Dresses are done!

Thanks to the epic migraine I had on Wednesday, I didn't get any sewing done. It was a doozy, but thankfully the kids played nicely and just let me rest until I felt human again.

As it turns out, I didn't already have the zippers. I needed to go to Joanns anyway, so I picked them up yesterday. I installed the zippers this morning, and completed the straps. I think sewing zippers is really easy. I have a zipper foot for my machine, which makes them really easy to do.

I am pleased with this dress pattern (Simplicity 3859), so I will definitely use it again. Can you guess which dress belongs to Maggie and which belongs to Cassie?

I love it when projects get completed. I think that the girls can wear these for Fathers Day pictures. We get Lino a picture tie, this will be nice and bright! An Nate has a cute hawaiian shirt that might match....
