Riley Top and Karen Capri Pants with a little something extra

I've always liked to try different things with patterns so they can be used over and over and have a different look.  For this outfit, I combined two patterns - Riley Top for the top and Karen Capri for the pants and added a smocked insert along the bottom of both.  I'll put a turtleneck under the top for cooler weather.  I thought this would be a good fabric choice for Fall and into the Spring.

LSU Dresses for my granddaughters

I managed to find a little sewing time to make these two LSU dresses for my granddaughters.  I know I have neglected blogging, facebooking sewing and designing.  It's been a busy year with the 3 grandbabies.  They grow so fast and I try to spend as much time as I can with them.  For that reason, I am going to put the pattern designing on hold temporarily; at least for the rest of this year.  I have so many ideas for patterns that I hope to begin trying in 2012.
