My Sweet Apple

I love this dress!! I especially love the fact that it fits with the whole first day of school "apple" theme, but at the same time it does not scream ABC's, and thus it can be worn year round...see I really am try to help ya'll out here! L2 was pretty enamored with it too, as you can see...

Let's Get TINKY!

Whew! It's been awhile I know. This daily summer routine has been keeping me hopping.... with all the swimming, craft and painting projects and the desperate search to find indoor playgrounds in this sticky FL always amazes me how little time I find to sew in these supposed lazy days of summer. In the midst of it I did manage this TINKY Dress for Ivylane's Wings On Things Launch.

I used Patty Young's Frieda pattern for the top of the dress and I think the fact that I rarely use patterns was coming through because I swear when I read the instructions it was all clear to me....but I probably sewed the wrong parts together the same wrong way about 3 times before I got it right. Combine that with the fact that L2 has worn this dress for the past 2 days straight, and you can see why the sample is not for sale.

And...did you see Melissa's super awesome bows????? They were the inspiartion for this set...i saw them listed awhile back and just HAD to have them! So the dress was made to match. L2 was constantly leaning her head down and reminding me as we took the photos..."Don't forget Miss Melissa's bows Mommy!"

And Miss Cree over at This Is Boutique has been super duper nice to me lately...i got another of of these...
