Jo creates the most adorable clothes, like this dress, for her girls. She also takes fabulous pictures! Photography is another of her passions.
Often, Jo chooses contemporary patterns, always adding her own classic touches, like the hand embroidery on the apron.
On this dress, she added an especially unique and clever detail, a label made from the fabric selvage. This is an idea she gleaned from Pinterest. CORRECTION: Jo says it was a Flickr idea.
Even with five children to love and nurture and 3 to homeschool, Jo finds time to teach sewing to her older daughter, 8 year old Joy, and a neighbor girl. AND she sews matching AG doll dresses for most of her creations!
Wow! She makes me tired.
I love this dress, the pattern, the fabric choices and the embroidery. Joy looks absolutely precious wearing it.
Here is what Jo has to say about the dresses for Joy and her doll.
