Purple is In
I had to make something out of this fuschia-ish purple fabric I found. I think next time I will follow an actual store-bought pattern. My method usually goes like this: I draw a sketch of the dress, I draw out pattern pieces on file folders, I cut out the fabric, and I start sewing together like crazy praying that it will all come together in the end. It usually does come together, but not without being more difficult than necessary.
Drew really liked wearing this dress. It was loose and gave her belly plenty of breathing room. I told Jason I'm going to have to start making toddler maternity wear for her and her belly. (I usually prefer the word "tummy" to "belly," but in her case it is definitely a belly.) Now all the outfit needs are some leggings and cute shoes.
Although Jason told me what a good job I did on the dress, he could only hold out so long without saying, "Hey, the 80's called. They want their ruffle back." I knew he would hate the ruffle!
