More Ice Cream Please

Sunday, October 27, 2013

I love this dress!!! The details and the design are different than anything else I have ever made for my daughter. Most dresses are so similar that I get a little bored making them, but this dress surprised me. And, although it was different, it was easy. 

Halloween Staple Dress

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

This year, I decided not to make my daughters Halloween costumes. I made this decision after my husband, who has never participated in Halloween, asked if Braelyn, 22 months, could be a crab and Mackenzie, 7 months, could be a shrimp. I, of course, love that he is actually excited about Halloween, so I agreed. The thought of spending time making a pattern for these two costumes did not excite me at all. In fact, it annoyed me.

Playtime Dress by Oliver + S Now Princess Dress

Monday, October 21, 2013

We went to Disney on Ice last week,  and the girls had more fun than I expected! Braelyn, although being almost 2, absolutely loved it, and Fabiana loved, in her words, "all of them". When Daniela and I bought tickets a few weeks ago, we knew we wanted to make the girls special princess dresses to wear.

Anouk Tunic by Victory : Pattern Review

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

My first Victory pattern is complete, and I love the result. Victory is a company from Canada that makes women's patterns. I chose this pattern because it was labeled intermediate, and I wanted to be able to tell customers and students what "intermediate" means to Victory. I would say this pattern is more advanced not because of the fit or the technique but because of all of the stitching in the ditch that must be done. I barely had to serge because there were so many seams covered by a lining. If I was not good at stitching in the ditch before, I am now!
