Stars & Stripes Outfits

These are the outfits I made for the kids to wear for the 4th of July festivities. We were so busy that weekend,that I didn't get to take any pictures before they wore them. I finally got some today (although please excuse the horrible light) and thought I would post them for my own archives. Better late than never, right?

My daughter really enjoys wearing A-line dresses,so we went with that again. She picked this fabric as she is obsessed with stars at the moment. The pattern I used is New Look 6504 (View B), which I already used for her Sparkly Butterfly Dress. The red accents, which shelso picked, make the dress very girlie and patriotic.

My son just got the basic matching shorts which he wore with a navy blue polo. I love these shorts on him because they fit perfectly and I don't need to pull them up every five minutes. They are Burda pattern (#9639) which I previously used for these patchwork shorts.
