So Spring IS Coming

I made Keira a little outfit for spring, seeing as I have ~2 months left before baby arrives.  This I made from some Jo-Ann fabric I got for V-Day two years ago.  It is a little sheer, and has a slight sheen to it, too.  The nicest quilting fabric I've seen at Jo-Ann as far as girls' clothing goes.  I got the lace trim there, too.  So nice to use something that's been shelved that long.

Again, for the 4th (?) time, I used my Oh So Sassy Tessa Dress pattern to make the top.  I wish I had made the top a little longer.  Also, this was the first time I'd used the pattern for a size 5T, and noticed the arm holes were a little snug.  But she wore it to church and no complaints, so I'm happy.  I put 4 pleats at the bottom, which made the skirt bow out a little at the bottom, an unintentional nice touch.  I also made her a matching hair bow.  I love making hair bows.  So calming.  And quick.  And endless possibilities. 

Speaking of Jo-Ann, I went there during their President's Day Sale weekend, and scored two new Simplicity patterns:  a new Cynthia Rowley 2512 and a Project Runway 2698 (I like the short skirt on the left) ($1 ea).  I found some apparel fabric I'd like to make a skirt out of, but cant' decide which to make it into.  If you wouldn't mind, let me know what skirt you think in a comment : )  Thanks!
