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.

OOOh-- beautiful. And the dress isn't too bad either. Can you make me one while you're at it? :-)


That turned out very cute! It helps to have an adorable model...!

Holly B.

Such a cute dress! Love her curls!


She looks so vivacious and adorable! Lovely!



How Cute and she is totally working it.Go Emma.


Dear Emma : you're so very pretty !!!

larger straps are usually more comfy in the (big) heat... but then it's not possible on all patterns... the back seems right to me.


so sweet! excellent choice of fabric. and her headband is a great accessory with it.
it draws attention to her beautiful hair!

just a tip for left over fabric pieces,

i took squares of scraps from other projects, and a remnant or two and made a childs patchwork skirt. sewed a small lace trim on the bottom and turned out quite nice.


Oh my word... could that girl be any cuter?! Cute dress! I saw that fabric at "the Lobby" (as my girls call it) and loved it. My Emma is into blue these days too!
