Well, the countdown keeps ticking and I am now down to 40 days until my big move! I can hear the clock ominously ticking as I do my best to prepare for the big changes ahead. Today I worked on updating and improving my resume as its time to start applying for jobs. In the mean time I have put together a couple fun dresses!
Remember this crazy fabric??
Yes this girl is wild about this animal print! So much so I pared it with polka dots and then whipped out an awesome and fun caftan! The pattern was a free printable pattern and lets be honest, the instructions were poor! However that did not stop me! My only regret is that I didn’t add pockets!
I made it for a trip to the Missouri Botanical Gardens one of my favorite places to visit! Each summer they host the Whitaker Music Festival! Its a free event and you get to bring friends, a picnic, drinks, and just enjoy music and beautiful plants and people!
The next week I decided I was going again and that yes, I should have another new dress. So, knowing I loved the fit of my Garden Party Dress the last time I made it I decided I should make a summery version! It is amazing how you can really change up a pattern just by changing the material.
If you can ignore my unkept hair and goofy expression! I have yet to get a good photo in this dress because I forgot to take a good photo once we arrived at the gardens. Plus it was so humid that evening I was quite sweaty anyways!
Today while out and about I purchased Vogue 8759 as I really should get around to making the Men’s shirt I promised!
As always comments and questions are always welcome and appreciated! Have a lovely day!
