If you remember, soon after Isabelle made her big debut my mother and sister-in-law gave me a sewing machine for my birthday. I had HUGE plans, dreams and hopes for sewing machine projects. I could make dresses, monogramed shirts, pillows, the list goes on.
I know how to sew and I had a daughter. Just imagine all the trouble I could get into!!
Then, sadly, the sewing machine sat. and sat. and sat.
Thanks to a little help* I decided that I could redirect my focus back to the sewing machine (which hadn't even been out of the box!). Once I got it out I had to make SOMETHING or else I would continue to put it off.
& wouldn't you know?! I made Isabelle a simple dress in the matter of a few hours!
(albeit a little form fitting and long. I tried to create a pattern and she was sleeping so I couldn't test it on her to check the size.)
I had some yellow gingham, that my sweet grandma recently sent to me, and some left over pink fabic from pillows I made for Isabelle's room before she was born. Perfect little Easter-time dress!
Growing up my grandma sewed a lot. Everything, from clothes to blankets. She any my aunt Michelle even made Michelle's prom dress!! I know, impressive.
I can not wait to make more things. I hope to soon take a trip to the fabric store and load up!
Here she is in her sweet little dress:
i get it. they are all of her sweet face. honestly, the face is far
more precious than the dress ;)*I'm obsessed with a little present from dyer. It helps me keep my sanity & most importantly, enjoy the things that I love (including my sweet isabelle, dyer and rowdy. and blog and sewing and relaxing and reality show watching.)
