Here I am back at sewing and blogging again :)
Over the years I have seen some bloggers I enjoyed following disappeared without any notices, and I understood the lives could get busy and blogging would be left behind. But now I REALLY understand...kid grows and they actually requires more of your time, There is always something to deal with, whether it's a crazy weather, people, job issues, or anything else. Your hobby, sewing, crafting, or blogging take hit. And once you stop, it's hard to come back.
But I'm glad KCW was there to push me to sew...it reminded me that I love to sew! I have been tired and feeling too lazy to sew, but it felt good to make something, and felt even better to see my little girl loving it!
Momo picked this hearts print double gauze out of my stash, and that was over a month ago. I was a bit surprised, as it is not pink or purple. But of course Momo wanted this...she loves heart shape. She loves to draw, and always draws hearts on everything!
And it is a great choice, double gauze is a perfect fabric for summer wear we need now!
Since the double gauze feels great to skin, I wanted a design that did not require lining. And I only had 1M of it...I knew I was not able to give Momo the usual twirly dress. I spent good amount of time going through the patterns, and finally decided on: Butterfly Dress - Sewing In No Mans Land. It's a free pattern I got for signing up the newsletter for Sew What Club.
The pattern is a renewal version, and I actually made the same dress 4 years ago.
As I was sewing I felt the dress seemed too big on Momo, so I trimmed the sides a little. But it was not necessary as the dress is worn with a belt.
I do feel like this dress looks a bit like a pajama.. because of our fabric choice. Maybe I should make the dress shorter and that will help it look less pajama-like?
Linking up to those fun parties.
