My husband gave me a new camera for Christmas and I have been playing with it. Here are some shots that I got when my dad was visiting and was fishing with the kids under this waterfall.

To do the top part of the dresses I used the same method as here. For the baby one I did the same idea but had to cut a neckline and sleeves.
I did add a little bit of the flowers to the top of the dress for my older daughter and added a bit of a scrunch in the front of the baby's dress. Otherwise the process was pretty much the same. Instead of hemming the sleeves and the neckline for the baby's dress I added a binding.

I took a pair of jammie pants that fits him now and used that as my guide. I folded the pants in half and using the folded side I cut the fabric about an inch bigger then the actual pant leg to account for seam allowances. At the waist line you want to cut the fabric about 3 inches bigger. I didn't do that and later realized that I should have. Then using the piece that I just cut out as a guide, I cut a second piece on the fold.
I turned one of the pieces right side out then stuck that piece inside of the other piece matching the seams together. That creates a U shape and I sewed the U together. I did a reinforcement stitch on that seam. Now your two pant legs are sewn together, then I finished off the hem on the legs, and put the elastic in at the waist.

here and ended up doing the exact same thing. I showed the picture to my husband a couple of months ago as a fun idea for this summer. Suddenly this past weekend my husband came upstairs from studying took the two oldest kids to Lowes and came back with the materials and put this together. The kids have had a blast everyday since in it.
