Proud of their Uncle!

My brother recently graduated from the Marine Corps Bootcamp. In honor of that I made these outfits for my kids to show how proud they are of Uncle Brice!

Annaliese's dress was made following the T-shirt dress tutorial from Just Deanna. I took a navy t-shirt, chopped it off, did the embroidery work, then attached the skirt. I purchased the Marine material at Hobby Lobby (it can also be found online). The ruffle material was in my stash from the Bargello Flag quilt I made several years ago.

I used a roomy shirt and made the skirt long, so she should get to wear it for a couple years.

I used Embird Alphabet #7 for "Proud Niece of a" and Alphabet #16 for "US MARINE".

Annaliese's dress took me about 3 hours to make; Dashiell's outfit was done in about 15 minutes... embroidery on a onesie, khakis were already in his drawer. :)

Here are a couple close-up shots:

Brice heads out for infantry school this week, so please keep him in your prayers!!
