Anyway, on to the finished objects...first (and by far the most work ;) I had a baby! Another little girl joined our family in early August and we're delighted to have her. She's a sweetheart and we've really been enjoying her. She's also been keeping us really busy. I forgot how much work a newborn is!
Now, the second, much less extensive project: a denim dress based on the Oliver + S Sailboat Top. Awhile ago, Liesl Gibson pinned a women's dress from Toast and mentioned that it would be a great modification for the Sailboat top. I thought so too, and before the baby was born, I made this for the 2 1/2 year old.
Here's a image of the original women's dress from Toast.
I also added patch pockets and added topstitching to the hem and sleeves. I like the way it turned out. It's a fun shift shape that's both retro and modern at the same time.
We'll see how things go on the blogging front from here out. I can't make any promises, but I have big plans ;)
