Got Girls World??

I received my Girls World book last week, but haven't been able to blog about much lately!! I had a weekend visit from my mom, so I wanted to catch up on orders so I could enjoy her visit (which I did), and now I am back catching up again!! Here's why I love Girls World:

*There are 4 dress patterns that go from size 2-14, so my 13 year old can still wear one of the dresses

*There are gorgeous frills & feminine touches for the girly girl, but the Tallulah Halter Dress has simple lines for girls like my Holly who want less ruffles. I can see making quite a few for her for the summer, can't wait to do that & post about it! (I think Jennifer needs a pattern for moms in that style, hint hint!!)

*Being more of a 'home sewer' I was drooling over all the projects under the Home section~ Holly loves the Patchwork Memory Board & wants to make George the puppy! I need to make the Birthday Banner~ really!!

*There are no sew projects~ lamp shade, headband and the ingenious "Ambassador of Goodwill" badges.

*Yay, a quilt pattern, pillow pattern as well as an amazing Canopy with Pinwheel Strands for your bed

Can you tell I LOVE this book? The photography is amazing, I love seeing her fabrics in action & combined. After I look through it, I am truly inspired to create!

You can see my journal & notecards in the background, all happy colors to add to my desk. :) I really love the quilt I recently made, so with the scraps I made a mug rug so I can see the blue, fuschia & orange combo every day. Hopefully, that catches you up with what I've been up to lately!

The book sounds amazing! I bet you could make your own mommy pattern to match your daughter once you sew one or two and just measure and add just a little more for seam allownace here and there and a little to the length.......Bet ya can!
Happy Sewing, Now I want that book......
