I’m pretty sure I’m jinxing myself talking about the projects I have planned, but I wanted to share anyway. I’ve been sewing up a storm for the last week, working on not one, but two dresses. The first is almost done and I’m hoping to have the second done by tomorrow.
Additionally, I’ve decided that I need a new dress for Easter this year. It seems like a good reason to make something a little more polished for the warmer months. I have several sundresses, but they feel too dressed down for church and I always loved getting an Easter dress as a kid. I have this really random polyester jacquard (I think) that I got at Hancock last fall. The scale of the pattern is much larger than I would normally pick, but it is pretty. I got enough to do a dress and jacket and picked up Butterick 5995 at the time I bought the material. I won’t get the jacket done before Sunday, but I should be able to get the dress done if I can keep on task.
Lastly, I have four knitting projects still on the needles and one giant crochet project, so of course I fell for the siren call of another project. That and pretty marketing emails are my downfall. Quince & Co, whom I have ordered from before and liked the yarn, has this adorable doll making kit for a little boy and his pet dog.
I’m going to try to knit up the whole thing for my middle child’s birthday. I have five weeks, so wish me luck.
