Way back...last winter...while Maelyn was sleeping soundly in her carrier ...Heidi and I browsed shoppes...and found the sweetest little dress pattern. It was a bubble dress...rather a vintage style...which would be perfect come summertime. Summer was a long ways off...and pattern and fabric were soon forgotten in my sewing room cupboards.
As I made plans for the next few weeks...everything that needed doing before company arrived...and before we set off to explore in our RV...that little cherub dress came to mind.
Sewing a retro dress...with vintage-look fabric...on a retro machine...seemed somehow appropriate. If you are at all interested in the pattern...or any of the others by oliverands...they can be ordered on-line (my next project will be the birthday party dress). I also came across a blog with step-by-step instructions and hints on sewing the Oliver + S dress...as bubbly and fun as can be!
Heidi stopped by yesterday...to have a raspberry feast...
Since birthday boys were busy last night (is playing ball a good excuse?)...we will celebrate birthdays this evening.
