Sometimes You Need a Valori Wells Pick-Me-Up. . .

I have been a touch discouraged about the coat fiasco, so I needed a boost. You know, the kind of boost that gorgeous fabric and an easy pattern can give. So I cut out a dress yesterday, while dictating spelling words to my happy homeschoolers and then sewed up as much as I could yesterday. The problem with on-the-whim projects is that sometimes you don't have everything you need, which in my case was a zipper. That slight set-back was quickly remedied last night and this morning the dress was finished.

The t-shirt underneath the dress came from Walmart. Organic cotton t-shirt for $4.50???? Yeah, okay you are coming home with me!

The pattern is Butterick 4842 which I found at a local thrift shop, but it looks like it is still available. I did lengthen the pattern a bit, but I think that's the only change I made.

Princess H. isn't the only one with style today. Notice Pumpkins shoes on the wrong feet? Yeah, style is what this family is all about!

Have a wonderful weekend!!!


LOVE hearing from you
