sew!


good morning! how was your weekend? we had the best sunday. it included church (kris is back hooray), sewing, ice cream with my dad and a lovely grilled dinner courtesy of my fine husband. we have been consuming far too much sugar so no mas until next weekend at least.

this tiny fete dress was created for one of my favorite little girls, willow. thus, i have dubbed it the willow dress (the creativity just doesn't stop around here). i want to name my dresses after babes they were created for. fun, no? willow loves pirates so it was imperative that the pirate ship be represented. because the body fabric has so much shazam we opted for pockets to keep the fabrics from competing too much. i also lined the pockets with a fuchsia and white striped fabric. they are curved and deep to hold whatever trinkets are necessary for the day. whatcha think?

i want to sew, sew, sew this week. also, my brother will be in town straight from a montana farm. can't wait to see him!

if you live in marietta you are probably as excited as i am that this restaurant is opening today. let's go out and support good food.

ps it's august (say what) aka the month of family birthdays... starting tomorrow!

The dress is amazing and you are the sweetest for personalizing it! Willow is a darling name. And I'm glad Marietta is getting some good restaurants . . . that way I won't have to drive to Atlanta to eat every time I'm home, heehee. Peace out, Chicago's!
