I dragged Elle & Kev to the Sewing & Stitchery Expo a few weeks ago & we had a blast. I had never been before & I was shocked by how huge it was. It was a sewing nerd's dream - haha. I bought two different knit fabrics to make Elle a few dresses and maybe a t-shirt for myself.
First up is this amazing galaxy print knit from the Pacific Fabrics booth. I love this store and their booth did not disappoint. This knit is thick, has great stretch & is such a fun print.
Today I had a very rare afternoon where I had nothing super important to do while Elle napped so I decided to sew her a t-shirt dress. I used the Sew Like My Mom Pistachio Tee as the top and kind of improvised on the gathered skirt using a dress she already had as a template. As soon as she woke up from her nap she immediately wanted to put it on. Yay!
I did a rolled sleeve because I love how it looks and I am still on the fence about whether to hem the bottom or not...for now the curling, raw hem is fine with me.
The sun came out for approximately 5 minutes today so we took full advantage and went outside to take some pictures. Sometimes she loves having her picture taken other days not so much...today was my lucky day.
