I’ve had a pretty stressful week at work (and it is only the middle of the week), so I’ve been trying to distract myself by taking on a mini sewing project after the kids are in bed. Lucky, I seem to have stock piled enough fabric and patterns to last me a while!
I finished this easy dress using Burda pattern 9627. I made the dress in 4T and made the hem about an inch longer. I love the bell sleeves and the whole 70-ish vibe/beach cover up the dress has going for it.
When I showed it to H. before I had finished the dress, she quickly asked if it was a spring and summer dress. She’s been obsessed with the seasons and planets as of late. Nothing like hearing a 3.5 year old say, “I see the solar system,” or “I like Pluto [I couldn’t bear to tell her of the planet’s demotion to a star] because it is the coldest planet. You need lots and lots of coats since it is freezing cold.”
I want to make a sleeveless version for the summer. With this long cold New England winter, that seems so far away.
I am hoping it will stay cold enough for me to wear the Karri sweater I have been knitting. I started seaming it up last night, but got distracted by Facebook. Hopefully, it will be done soon.
