In February when we visited
heaven S.R. Harris Fabric Outlet in Minnesota, one of my favorite finds was a sheer pink knit with layers of ruffles. By the time I got home, visions of "cherry blossom dresses" (to celebrate our upcoming trip to the DC Cherry Blossom Festival) were dancing through my head.

And even though a cold spring meant the cherry trees in DC looked more like this:
|No blossoms. But the weather was so pleasant I feel guilty even thinking about complaining!|
|SOMEDAY I am going to see DC when it looks like this! :)|
the girls' dresses at least were in full bloom.

Robyn's dress was pretty basic. (That's not the word someone else who-shall-remain-nameless used, but we won't go there... :) In my head it was a chance to let the fabric speak for itself, while hopefully making it a little more grown-up for Robyn. Or something like that.

|Three pictures of Amber, three different hair styles. We just barely cut her hair short again, and while I miss playing with her long hair (she has incredible hair!), she definitely prefers it pixie-length.|
|She's a little bit playful.|
|A little bit dramatic.|
|And a lot a bit sweet.|
Yay! Spring dresses done! And after the last few projects, my sewing machine is itching to do a project that isn't in triplicate. Hopefully that means there's a mommy-dress in my near future...
