Dress Making

Don't know why but I have been in the mood to sew clothes. Maybe it's this post from Amy Karol at Angry Chicken.I have made 3 skirts in the past weeks and now I want to make a dress. This is the one I chose. It looks easy enough, it does say easy on the pattern envelope. I found this pattern review site it has been most encouraging.

I chose Katie Jump Rope fabric called Ribbon Sunflower by Denise Schmidt. I had some help choosing. I ran errands with DH and ended up at the fabric store. He helped me choose the fabric. I tend to wear a lot of brown and black so he encouraged me to expand my pallet. He has this great sense of design and color. It was a fun day.

You can get the fabric here at Sew Mama Sew.

When we got home from our errands (weed eater, fabric and pattern, lunch, postoffice, office, he was even sport enough to take me to a thrift store!) the kids were home from school. It was homework time and getting ready for a baseball game-Kevin, and a softball game-Alea. No more project time.

Eric is on his 8th grade camping trip to Yosemite for 3 days. What a blast.I know he is going to have a great time. We as a family don't camp, I don't see the point myself. We live in the woods. Maybe we should try it sometime. Looks inviting doesn't it?

DH and I are planning a weekend getaway this weekend. Guess where we are going. Yep, no kids.
