Garment Bag

This is the perfect bag for my daughter to use for her dance show recitals or for use on a trip.
I used outerwear fabric for more durability.  The pattern came from here and I love it.  The embroidery font came from 8 Claws and a Paw.

Ruffled Peek A Boo Jumper

I had so much fun making this dress for my daughter. 
The pattern came from this book:

There are so many cute ideas for girls' clothes, I can't decide what to make next.

My daughter has been bugging me to make her a nightgown.  I finally got around to it.  She has a matching nightgown for her doll.  The patterns came from a new book I received as a gift.
