Halfway through this week I was feeling a little overwhelmed and then realized we have been out both morning and afternoon everyday. No wonder I wasn’t getting any work done around the house as Leah wasn’t napping at home. So, for the end of the week we planned nothing and stuck close to home. We still went out for walks and such but definitely spent more time at home which allowed me to work on this:
I had purchased a pattern when trying to find a pattern with and for a friend not too long ago. When I showed it to my mom, she pointed out I had bought the wrong size. I am still a rookie at these sorts of things. (Why do they list all the sizes on the back when only a few sizes are actually inside?) I know fabric stores aren’t too happy about returning patterns so I decided to try find some fabric to buy and brought Leah in order to help my case. They exchanged my pattern and I got to work.

The dress is a size 2 but apparently she will be able to wear it pretty soon. I didn’t want to make a dress that would fit her right now as she has so many dresses that other people have bought for her that I want her to get full use out of. This pattern has a few different sizes with a few variations as well so I could sew from this same pattern for a few years. I am sure just changing the fabric would change the look so much.

    Sandy, what a gorgeous dress! Well done:0)

    For a second there, I had to do a double take – I thought Leah’s feet and had grown about 11 sizes! Then I just realized that she had four of them- ha ha!
