Sewing for "littles"

  Our son and his wife are expecting their first baby- no, make that two babies! Yes, we are getting twins! And I am back in the sewing mode. I have 5 grandsons and I've sewn for all of them, but I am really hoping we get at least one girl this time. They are choosing not to find out ahead of time and that's great, but makes the suspense double. I can't really even imagine getting two girls. We have 3 sons and 5 grandsons so far and on Kate's side, she has 1 sister and 5 or so brothers, so if we could just get one girl, please.
  Anyway, I've recently run across these pillowcase dresses and fell in love with them. They are so simple to make and can be made so many ways. You can use a real pillowcase like this one or start from scratch with fabric. This one is a size 1 and I have enough fabric left to make bloomers to match. Flower is made from fleece with grosgrain ribbon leaves.
   Sew I am off to do more sewing for the "littles".
