    I've been sewing outfits for my neighbor's twins. Its so difficult to find something that coordinates for boy/girl twins - particularly as they age. These are for weddings this summer. The twins are 3.

    Thanks April,

    I just saw the dolly clothes for Izabella! Wow, I forgot to include the little dress I made for Sydney's dolly - it was so darn difficult to make! Like quilting - there are "tricks" you learn to do. I've forgotten some of those "tricks". but it was fun.

    So, are you already for college?

    That's what I'm hoping for LOL, of course, not to detract from the bride. But, I hope that they will be so cute that no one will mind too much when they get tired and a bit "pissy". :)

    I am almost ready, Have to get my course material (and now hubby has to have surgery right smack dab in the middle of classes) so now i have to figure out how to work full time, go to school, care for the little one and him (oh and did I mention the dogs too :shock: ) This will work...this will work and maybe some day I can make a dress as beautiful as you have :-)
    Hugs
