Bright for Summer

I finally got around to making these matching dresses for my girls that I've had floating in my head. I LOVE the way they turned out! The pom pom trim I think adds so much. I ordered it from Sally over at A Little Scrappy. She's got a great little etsy shop and is fabulous to work with! For Hayden's dress I made the bodice and straps red.
For Mia's dress I made the bodice and straps yellow. I also added double sided pockets using the red fabric I used on Hayden's on the outside, and the yellow fabric on the inside.
All the fabric I used is from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden line. Its my all time favorite! So summery and bright.
We're in California on vacation so it was fun to have a change of scenery for this photo shoot. Mia LOVED the apricot tree in my Aunt and Uncle's backyard. To view more pictures go to my photography blog.
