We're about to get a little Lila-centric over here. Well, to be fair, this blog is a little Lila-centric already (because she is my oldest/most cooperative model.) The next few weeks are extra special though, because my girl is starting school soon. Curazy.
I think I'm more nervous than her. :)
We really tried to live it up this summer. Snow cones, movie nights, and zoo trips galore. I realize "live it up" probably means something a little more exciting to you. But to us, we were living the good life. ;)
This dress is a representation of our pleasant summer. Not really sure why. It just makes me happy. It's probably the best thing I have ever made. Bar none. The cobalt, flowers, pockets, double layer skirt--all of it. Plus the fact that I didn't rush through and I actually sewed it right. Ya, that's probably why I like it so much. ;)
Plus it's oh so cute on my precious five year old. Life when your five is so good, or so I'm told. :)
It's a geranium dress. Fabric from Joanns. (old) I made a shirt out of it for me, but had just enough to eek out a bodice. Man, I'm glad I save all those scraps! (I have to justify my scrap saving to Superman.)
Anyway, I'm always so satisfied when I make geranium dresses. One of the best patterns in all the land in my humble opinion--it never disappoints.
Hope your summer has been as pleasant as possible!
