A Winner & Two Dresses
One small hiccup in my move. While writing this, all my past comments are g o n e! Totally missing – I think I read that they may slowly make the move, but I was expecting all those comments (with numbers!) to be there when I was ready to select a winner for the Burgundy Buttons giveaway! Thank goodness, I have all my comments emailed to me! If anyone has an answer to the missing comments – I’d love to know!
I lined up the emails and started counting :) There were 440 entries and RNG selected #59
Which corresponds with Barbara! Congratulations, Barbara :)
I spent a couple hours working on dresses Saturday and Sunday afternoons. My Sophia and Emmalie’s eyes would grow wide as they realized I was working on their dresses – they are too cute!
This is Sophia’s:
This is Simplicity 2711, and adorable, if I do say so myself! I need to hem it and add a closure to the back yet, but I want to get Ella’s to the same spot first :) This pattern was fun and relatively simple, just lots of little steps in the bodice!
This is Emmalie’s:
Green is her favorite color. If she has a clean shirt and pants in green, she will wear them together – no matter what shade of green! This flower had her name on it – and she loves, loves, loves that mommy finally made her a dress!
This is Simplicity 3546, little more challenging, mostly because it has a lot of options and a lot of instructions to go with them all! But so cute and, Em had fun deciding which sleeves and collar she wanted to be made. I’m not really all that indulgent with them, but a new dress is something to contemplate and make sure that they love. Emmalie is especially picky in clothing too, so I want to be sure that she will actually wear it after spending the time making it!
The third dress, for Ellis, is cut and waiting – I need to get it done and move on, so hopefully today I will have the chance to sit and create a little :)
What are you up to today?
