Summer Storms

I found this great tutorial for this pillowcase dress on The Polkadot Chair . I love it! It was easy and quick to make and has beautiful detailing. There isn't a better dress for dancing in an afternoon rainstorm.Bow ties are all the rage right now in our church. Eli has a friend who is 14. He hangs out with him every week while Abby is at piano. He always wears bow ties, and Eli needed one too. I had extra fabric left over from Abby's dress that would be perfect. I adapted THIS PATTERN. I used the general outline of the tie and then added elastic to the neckline portion for comfort. Plus, now I don't have to get online to figure out how to tie it every Sunday morning because I can just slip it on and off. You can find great directions on how to tie one on loves it so much he requested a red one too! They only took about 15 minutes to make, so why not? Jennifer
