It's funny how my energy comes in spurts these days. Most days I have absolutely no energy whatsoever, but others, I get into a bit of a frenzy. This weekend was one of those frenzy weekends. I think all my bottled up sewing wants got the better of me!
First on the agenda was making a little something for a little friend who had her first birthday this weekend. Being the little sister of 3 older brothers, I knew it had to be something girlie. After a bit of digging in my stash, I settled on this pink and brown Amy Butler print. I decided to pair it with another AB print, brown on pink.
I used my go-to girl dress pattern, the chic-chic dress. Once the dress was made, it still needed a little something. I happened to have some lace laying out from another project, which was perfect with the off-white in the prints. I love when things like that happen!
I added the lace to the hem first, then decided to add it to the sleeves. There wasn't quite enough of the lace to do the sleeves, so they're not the same, but I don't think it's noticeable. That just makes it more unique!
As tempted as I am to tell you all about the other projects I got to, I think I'll save it up for another day. Unfortunately the laundry is calling and who knows when I'll get this much accomplished again! Until next time...
