What is living simply?

  • Living simply is not so much about the particulars of our lives as much as it is about the principles that govern them. Knowing what God has called you to do, and then doing it--that's living simply.

Cute dresses. I might have to pick up that pattern next time at the fabric store.I've been using the same dress pattern on my four year old for long time. I think it's time to move on.

So very cute!!! I like the modifications you did, as well. These also would be cute in a soft eyelet. Although you always have to line eyelet... If it's just the two pieces, it would be easy to line with a thin light pink or aqua too, without much effort. Am rambling now.... but thanks for the pattern review! xoxo


Cute! I'll be the girls love them. My sewing skills match my cooking skills (in other words... HELP!) but I've had this yearning to sew lately. And I saw the cutest pattern at Wal-Mart (WAL-MART!) and have the urge to try it. Am I pregnant or something? Where do these crazy thoughts come from?!


I have this exact pattern! I have it all cut out and ready to go. Thanks for the thoughts about how the dresses fall. I will have to check that out. Maybe I will make mine a little straighter as well. :)

I just had to tell you that these dresses are so in: ) I have seen this shape and style on many woman and children in magazines and TV shows in just the last week. Hurry, get more fabric, because you are on to something! Just had to share. As always, very cute!


Can I just say, you are uber-cool?!! I may have to try it...after all, I did some sewing on my last scrapbook page...:-)
