sheesh. i read TONS of blogs everyday and somehow that makes me feel like i write in my own everyday. guess not :)
so, here I am, with a second (or two) to blog. I HAVE HAVE HAVE to show you this!
If you are in FB - this will be a bit of a repeat since you've seen my pics already - but if you care for the story behind this sweet little dress - Here it goes!
I was all prepared to write a tutorial for the dress and my camera
battery died. I took that as a sign! :)
So, I have loved this pillow case for a long time. (my grandma calls them pillow slips - and i LOVE that!)
Anyway, it was such a pretty vintage looking pillowcase. Creamy background with light blue and yellow periwinkles all dreamily scattered around - and a ruffle -
OH THE RUFFLE! That's what made my mind start whirling about 4 yrs. ago that this would make a beautiful dress for my little girl...but we kept having boys :)
So, while I have been here in Canada, I saw the pillowcase and got so excited and asked if i could turn it into a dress!
I enjoy sewing interiors. My sister Jenny has been making her own clothes and refashioning pieces for years so with my plan in mind,we worked together, drew out a pattern, measured one of Liv's dresses and went to town!
It took us a few hours - but we had a blast designing it together and seeing it realized (AND SEEING IT FIT HER PERFECTLY!! That was awfully satisfying!)
So, here she is in her little dress made with love by mommy and aunt j-mo.
