+ my sister-in-laws are better than yours.

I seriously have the prettiest sister-in-laws ever! I use them as my models alllll the time. This is Emily from emilyjdickson.blogspot.com, she married my older brother Mike. They have moved since this shoot, and I miss her oh so dearly. Anyway, I made this tube top dress from vintage navy blue fabric from the simplicity 9909 pattern, then paired it with a cream belt. Doesn’t she have the tiniest waist? That is why she is modeling it…not me and my post baby bod. It actually was an easy pattern, the only problem was even though I made it in my size, I had to take it in a ton. I think I’m going to refashion it into a cute high waisted full skirt, with pockets. I’m not sure though. maybe i just need to add some embellishments. Also check Emily out modeling a knit circle skirt back in June. 


  1. SO pretty (the clothes and the girls)… :)

  2. She is sooo pretty! I love the dress and the color!

  3. She’s so pretty! I wish I had a sister in law!!! I have 3 brothers but so far no potential wives in sight :)

  4. That is a great tip especially to those fresh to the blogosphere. Simple but very accurate info… Appreciate your sharing this one. A must read article!
