For the last two years I have made a dress for Abbie to wear on her birthday (click here for the 2008 dress, and the 2007 dress). This year I have been very busy with school and have not been sewing much. I really wanted to make her a dress though so tonight I took on the mission of making a dress in one night. The fabric was from a lady at Nimble Thimbles that was clearing out her stash. When I saw it I knew it would make a darling dress, but I also knew that it needed to be rather simple so that I would actually be able to finish it before her birthday. The pattern is a free one from Oliver +S that I found on the internet, the ruffle hem was my idea. The dress took me under two hours to complete and I think that it looks great! I can't wait to see Abbie in it tomorrow.
Last Monday the kids and I had dinner at Heather's house. The kids had been playing noisily in the next room and all of the sudden it was quiet. Of course we went to investigate and found that both Paul and Abbie had climbed into his crib and were happily stickering themselves.
