Just call me Sandra Lee

For those who don't know the reference, Sandra Lee has a show on the food network called "Semi-Homemade" where she makes meals that taste like they're from scratch, but their not. While I don't create my own recipes, I did make a couple of semi-homemade dresses for my girls last week. I was at Target and saw this dress...

I thought it was very cute, and upon further inspection I realized I could easily make it myself. So I found some shirts on clearance, got some material on sale, and had a coupon for half off the elastic. I used the bottom half of a dress pattern I have for the skirt and viloa!

I am really happy with how they turned out, and once I learned a few tricks on the first dress, the second only took a couple of hours (that includes waiting for Kaylee to get home from school so I could do some measurements). I can hardly wait to make more!
