I am NOT a good photographer, so these pictures really don't do these dresses justice.
Completed dress #1. The picture of Leah modeling this dress is a little blurry, so here is the dress lying on the ottoman.

Isn't this a cute way to hem the dress?
I bought Leah leggings in the same color as the t-shirts for her to wear on cold days.
We used the instructions found on Cool People Sew. Look on the left sidebar for the "How to Make a T-shirt Dress" link.
We will spend the next few home ec lessons on menu planning and grocery shopping. Our next sewing project will be sewing twirly or tiered skirts for the older girls.
