Sewing, Sewing,Sewing

I bought these 2 patterns, only to realize that i had a similar pattern (5944) that i use to use when making sundresses for my daughter back in the 1980's...patterns haven't changed much, just the price! lol!
I came across this fabric a couple months ago,,,I just luv the whimsy fabric.
I still need to find the perfect buttons for this lil dress.
This is an easy peasy outfit that can be a top or dress. And once again,,,I luv the fun fabric.
It is such a cute wrap dress/top,,,,now why can't I make one for myself! lol! (back side)
The shorts match both outfits and can be worn with either outfit. (front side)
These outfits will be tucked into my suitcase & will travel with me back to Germany...
I am flying back to Heilbronn in April with my mom, we are taking a 'Mother~Daughter' trip back home to visit family & friends.
My childhood best friend, Irmgard has a Grand daughter, and these outfits are for her.
Now to get busy making some for my own Grand babies.
