Spring break was so wonderful and it was certainly difficult for me to make the transition back to our regular routine yesterday and back to blogging. We’re all looking forward to summer vacation…just about 6 weeks away. Time is going by too quickly these days so I’m trying to savor each and every moment.
This past weekend without the kids around I was able to do a bunch of sewing. A little for me, a little for Sarah. I had this dream last week of a yellow polka dot sleeveless wrap dress and I still can’t get it out of my mind. I haven’t found just the right pattern for it yet, so I opted for a yellow skirt. I LOVE this fabric and I can’t wait to wear it tomorrow when it’s going to hit the mid 90s. I used Simplicity 2906 and I definitely will make a few more skirts with it.
I also fell in love with the light chambray with aqua dots fabric. I decided to use it for a dress for Sarah though I kind of want to make a skirt for me now. This is the first time I’ve made a dress with a lined bodice and zipper. I think if I make it again, it will go more smoothly, but first time around wasn’t so easy. Can directions get any more vague? Thank goodness for the internet and all the great tutorials out there! Anyway, it’s a sweet little dress and Sarah has requested another one in purple. Yes, any excuse to take a trip to the fabric store.
Up next is this dress for Sarah.
As usual, I’m linking up with Frontier Dreams.
