So I conquered a fear this weekend. I made a dress! It is actually my second one. I made one this time last year too for Anne.
I originally blogged about this dress last May. I have a fear of clothes, for several reasons. Mainly just two: curved seams and not really being able to fudge the measurements. I mean measure or cut wrong and it isn’t going to FIT and then you have a bunch of wasted time, energy and most depressingly FABRIC! So I made Anne one dress and never made another…until now!
This only happened because of Kristy at Hopeful Threads. She is such an inspiration, in sew many ways, that I finally decided that I needed to go outside my comfort zone for somebody else. I followed a really great tutorial from Sew Like My Mom, and it took me a little over an hour. Thank you Kristy for inspiring me to get off my duff! (And PS. Anne will have one of these in no time!)
On a totally different note, I also finished my fourth Swoon block! Just in time to make it 4 for 4 – four months four blocks. What do you think?
On an entirely non-sewing related note – I hope you all have had a fabulous weekend. We had a great weekend! We took Anne to our local Children’s Museum and she also learned how to pedal a trike this weekend! That was so cool to see, one day she couldn’t do it and the next day, like magic, she could. Big proud mama moment 🙂
