Easter Outfits

Posted by Picasa
I made these up for the kids this morning, and I'm really pleased with how they turned out! (I'm less than pleased with Siu Jeun's cooperation during the photo shoot...but what can you do, right? I just barely managed to snap this before he ran off. Even Ming Wai couldn't hold him down. He was a boy with places to go!)

The dress and the shorts are made out of a short-sleeved button down shirt I saved from our Goodwill-Bound pile. The shirt used to belong to my husband. I believe he bought it back when busy brown floral prints were still all the rage in men's wear.


(PS - A tutorial is in the works for both the dress, and the shorts. The dress used up most of the body of the shirt, and the shorts use the sleeves. Pretty slick!)

(PPS - I promise that Siu Jeun will be wearing more clothes than this on Easter. I was too anxious to get this shot to get him dressed first! I'm picturing a nice cream colored polo shirt...)

PPPS - Happy Easter, everybody!
