Alright. I am keeping an open mind. Or at least I’m trying. Even though this is what we woke up too a few days ago…
The snow was so wet and heavy that it clung to everything. One of the larger branches on this tree broke off because of the weight. (it is on our front lawn) We have had a couple of milder days since, so some of the snow has melted. But not enough!!! It snowed again today. Not much, just enough to let us know it was coming down. I really don’t think Mother Nature got the memo. THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING IS IN SIX DAYS!! (21st) Everyone is ready for it, even the die-hard winter fans.
None the less, I have been doing some sewing for Spring. It just helps to make me feel better. (as long as I don’t look outside, lol) I haven’t listed anything new in my etsy shop in a while, so I thought it was time. These little dresses turned out so cute! I just wish I had a little girl to model them for me! I used Simplicity #5695 view B, for both dresses.
I used coordinating fabric for them both. The first one I made is black, white and yellow.
I wasn’t completely sure about using black, but now that it’s made, I love it. The yellow in the pattern really brightens it up. When it was finished, I thought it was a little plain, so I sewed a flower onto a pin back. Making it easy to remove for washing.
I made the second one this afternoon, in coordinating yellow and white. It is so bright and cheery!
This one deserved a flower too!
I have three more of these cute little dresses cut out and ready to sew. Now I just need the time to do it!
Thanks for visiting, and have a great day ladies! Anne
