Trying To Catch Up (Life is Good)

 I have been sewing, just not blogging.  I haven't been sewing nearly as much as I used to be able to, but if I do get time to sew AND take some photos, I definitely don't seem to have the time to blog about my process, fabrics, pattern and such.  I'm sad that I can't do what I used to, but this little boy has made everything more challenging... and more wonderful.

This is the Tie Dye Diva Janie and Jack pattern.  It's an adorable little pattern with a lined bodice and instructions for a snap crotch, which I decided to forgo.  I added a bow tie to try to make it more boyish.  He's just so pretty, it's not totally clear that he's a boy to all his public admirers.

 For our obligatory family beach photo in Destin, I sewed my shirt using the Grainline Tee pattern and I made the girls dresses from three different rayon prints I found at Hancock Fabrics (RIP) and used a combo of the Rabbit Rabbit Hummingbird dress bodice and the skirt from Annabelle by Violette Field Threads.

This is the OZ romper from Ellidactyl.  I made 2, but my snap process is not going well.  I can get them in, but then they keep getting pulled out in use.  I've stayed away from snaps for a while since I made this.

This is the most involved thing I've made for me since my boy was born.  It's my Easter dress.  I chose this beautiful rayon print from JoAnn's and used a Cynthia Rowley pattern from Simplicity (1801).

Oh, and I colored my hair pink, which was super fun, but too expensive to keep up for very long.
I'll try to do another catch-up post soon.
