Sewn : Strawberry Sherbet Baby Dress

Saturday, August 27, 2011

K first of all, if your name is Angie and you are pregnant, you need to stop reading this now!!!


Ok now that we've gotten that out of the way,
My older sister (Angie) is pregnant with her first! And she's having a girl. So of course I'm taking this opportunity to make baby clothes.



I decided to make this dress after seeing a really similar one at Nordstrom and not wanting to pay the $40 price tag. I also wasn't much a fan of the 3-tone color palette so I decided I'd just make my own.



I used Simplicity 2460 and then just made a few tweaks here and there. For those of you who have followed my blog for a while, the dress probably looks similar to the swimsuit I made for my other niece. I hope they don't mind matching! ;)

Have a good weekend everyone!

Sewn : Gray High-Waisted Dress

Sunday, August 14, 2011


I made another dress! (someday I'll branch out and make shorts or 
something I swear.)
I used Vogue V1237 and New Look 6723 . Bits and pieces of both. 
Originally I was going to have a tulle underlayer but tulle is 
scratchy and uncomfortable so I nixed that idea. I still think it 
would have been cute though. 

{}  
In other news, im officially legal now! As of Wednesday, I'm 18 years 
old. Which in the state of Utah basically means I can buy dry ice.. ha but 
it's still kind of cool to say!
(And no this isn't my birthday party, but I loved it too much not to pretend like it was. :) 

Did you do anything fun/crazy/exciting when you turned 18?

Shabby Apple Dare to Design Contest

Wednesday, August 3, 2011

Some of you may remember the last time I entered Shabby Apple's Dare to Design contest. Well I figured I would enter in again this year.



I'm entering in the dress I drafted for senior ball, so I apologize in advance since this post will be a repeat for some of you.. Don't hate me. :)


 (Say hi to my friend Natalia! She made her dress too. No I'm not joking you, she's amazing I know.)

The top of the dress would be composed of two layers, first an off-white soft satin for the sweetheart bodice and then a floral lace overlay with cap sleeves. The dress would have a high waist and an exposed gold zipper down the back, with the satin fabric being an underlining for the skirt as well.


And of course it would adhere to Shabby Apple's dress design standards. No cleavage poking out or anything. (That is if I had any cleavage. I'm not too blessed in that area unfortunately.)


(Inspiration)

Wish me luck!
