I absolutely ADORE sewing for baby girls... So wish I could dress my 13 yr old baby girl still in these fashions !!! But at least she loves to sew along with me- thank you for your time spent in collecting and sharing with us all... I certainly appreciate (and "take in") any moments possible I can spend with her. We've actually created a sewing class for my daughters "groupies" - revamped the playroom into a new Studio and have since started collecting used, older machines for each girl to be able to sew on ! (My husband says it really looks like I'm running a sweat-shop, lol !) Sewing had sort of become a lost art for younger generations... Incredibly happy to see its popularity booming !!!
