Simplicity skirt 2356 and lulu monogram shirt

Just another little school outfit for Boo's.
I started this and many others back in September and they have just been lying around~ UFO's that needed finished and modeled.

It feels so good to get them finished and out of the laundry room. I used Simplicity pattern 2356 for the skirt and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's slightly big and long, but at least she will be able to wear it for a while. I just fell in love with this fabric when I saw it at Hobby Lobby. When I saw the coordinating ribbon, I was sold!

I rarely put monograms or names on shirts, but Ella really wanted me to put this one on one of her shirts and I caved. I do like how it turned out, though, and I know that Emma can wear it later since it's just the monogram and not a name.

Ella loves the bow, too.
I used GGDesigns Stitch and Stack flowers on it. I'm convinced that those make everything cuter.

The past couple days I've been working on these UFO's and it's very productive... but a little boring... I'm ready to break into all those new patterns. I just have to clear my sewing desk and the laundry room out first.
