We were stuck at home most of the day with a sick Elliot. That meant my strict screen time rules were relaxed so he could chill out on the couch watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. It also meant that I had some time to sew while he watched Mickey.
After making Audrey a smocked dress last week I was in love. Smocked dresses are so cute and so fast. When I was at the fabric store yesterday I picked fabric for another dress for Audrey. I made the straps extra long so I can rip the seam out and lengthen them when she grows. I now want to craft a lemonade stand for the sole purpose of doing a photo shoot.
My sisters and I talked about how comfortable smocked dresses look last week after I made Audrey her first one. I decided to make us matching dresses (like my mom made us when we were little). I sewed them all up conservatively (I will likely have to take them in) and made straps for them to attach once they try them on. I hope we rent a lake cabin and spend days drinking coffee and wine and wearing our summer dresses.
I have a few more projects planned for this weekend. If Elliot is feeling better I’ll put them to the side and get outside to enjoy summer. The weekends usually mean a little more time for me to craft. I hope you are having a relaxing start to your weekend. If you are looking for an activity to do I highly recommend sewing a smocked dress.
