new Junebug dress for Sadie
I usually don't enjoy sewing the same things over and over again (hence my old Etsy shop going kaput)....but Sadie really "needed" a dress this past week. Like I need a hole in my foot, but whatever. Most of the dresses I've made her over the past few months she doesn't like anymore. So I've learned to make sure fabric is ok with her highness before I painstakingly sew it into an expensive closet decoration.
So tada! She got a new Junebug dress! With Sadie-approved fabric. (it's La Dee Da Coral Fiddlesticks from my fab sponsor, the Fat Quarter Shop!) I kept it simple on purpose...for 3 reasons.
a) I have no energy for embellishing. The green thread the buttons are sewn on with is all you're gettin'.
b) I'm 34 weeks pregnant. Isn't that an excuse for getting out of pretty much anything? (except labor, eventually. darn)
c) I like simple clothes best. Sometimes I get carried away with trying to make things new or different...but I am always drawn to simplicity. I should just embrace it, right? Plus, this is probably my all time favorite dress tutorial/pattern I've made, so it was high time another was sewn up!
Speaking of sewing new clothes, are you doing the Kids Clothing Week Challenge over on Elsie Marley? It's the first time in awhile I won't be out of town during it! lol...I am excited to have a goal and start sewing up some fall clothes! Hopefully my energy can last through my ambition. ;)
