Billy and I took a trip up to Torch Lake with a bunch of our friends last week. It was nice to get away for a little bit, but I was worried I might get behind on my sewing. My mom called me up during my trip and tells me she found a ton of remnants in really great fall colors, and should she pick some up for me? I was pretty excited about that, since I was running low on fabrics that would be good for this season. She calls me again a few days later and said, "I designed a dress, and Grandma made a pattern for it." My mom is a pretty stylish lady, so I didn't doubt it would be a great dress. When I got home, she showed me the dress, and I was totally floored! It's a mock wrap dress, with a cascading ruffle down the side of the skirt. It's so pretty! And my grandma presented me with a bundle of homemade pattern pieces, plus another dress pattern that they made!
All I have to do now is double-check the pattern and grade it. And sew a ton of dresses! I am super excited about the fabric too, my mom picked up a lot of really unique, beautiful pieces. The Renegade Craft Fair is in two weeks, and the DIY Street Fair is the weekend after that. I can do this!
