(And in the middle of all this Easter sewing mayhem I had to quickly make 5 red scarves for a ladies activity we had the Wednesday night before Easter)
Once those Easter dresses were done I breathed a big sigh of relief
Now for the fun to really begin!! On the Monday after Easter was my littlest girl's birthday and I wanted to make her a special birthday dress with fabric I had purchased long ago.
And on Monday we were leaving for a family vacation to Disneyland! After Sunday Evening service I went to work washing clothes and getting things ready to pack. While waiting to switch loads of wash (I live with a constant Mount Washmore so having things already clean is silly) I started on her dress. By 3am it was complete!! I love how it all turned out. (Sorry no pic of the back of the dress) I bought just enough of the red heart lace peeking out at the bottom. Whew! Making the skirt full was fun with the tulle (I cut just enough as well!).
Needless to say she loved it! When she saw it in the morning she gave me a hug and said, "I love it, Mommy." in her sweet little 3 year old voice. =)
Completing all these projects has let me cross some things off on my Pattern Challenge Goals list:
finish the jumper planned for Glory.
- make matching skirts for the girls.
make a Sunday dress for each of the girls.
- repurpose 2 shirts for Caleb.
make a tie for each special Sunday for Caleb. (Easter, birthday, etc.)
- finish the planned shirt and skirt for myself.
- And to do this all before Summer.
We are now settled and back from vacation. Even the bags and van are all unpacked (and clothes washed!). The next projects I want to tackle are the shirt and skirt for myself as well as a dress, repurpose some of Travis' old khaki pants for Caleb, make 2 Pencil Rolls. And that should do it for now. =)
So much to do in so little time.
