More of what I've been sewing

Here's another peek at what I've been sewing lately. This dress was made from a man's dress shirt. Isn't that just the cleverest thing? I can't take credit for the idea - I used this tutorial from MADE.
Liv loves it so much - she wants me to make a yellow one next, except she wants it to be a sundress. I've got some ideas knocking around in the skull, but haven't had a chance to actually try them out yet.

Oh, and gotta share a few pics from the Mom's Day celebration at Liv's school on Friday.

First some pics from the little music program. Nothing says childhood like songs with accompanying hand motions!

And then Liv presenting her Mom's Day gift to me.

And the two of us on the playground.

Altogether a very sweet day at Liv's school.

The dress was too cute for words when it was empty. But it's 100 times cuter on Liv. You really rock at this sewing thing, Ms. CG Sewing Editor.

Oh, and the photo of you and Liv...that is the cutest pic I've ever seen of you. It needs to be your new avatar.
