I've had an itch to stitch lately, but with a baby that I need to nurse every so often and 3 little girls that also need my attention, it's hard to carve out some sewing time for me.
I finally stole some time today to work on the sewing machine on a quickie little project I've had awhile. Some time ago, I found some cute strawberry fabric with the elastic at the top, on clearance and I knew that it would make a great summer dress for the girls. I whipped these up in about 30 minutes (would have been quicker if I didn't keep getting interrupted with "Are you done yet, mama? Now are you done? Is it ready?") and the girls have been wearing them ever since.
I used some cute ribbon for the shoulder straps and oldest wanted her dress to be strapless, but she compromised and accepted straps that tie behind her neck, halter style.
I've got my sewing fix and the girls get dresses out of the deal. I'm happy, they're happy, we're all happy! Except baby, who started crying the last 10 minutes of my sewing and Hubby had to soothe and comfort him until I finished. Thanks Hubby! :o)
