little golden dress

sewing, like any art, has definite ups and downs. sometimes your sewing mojo is on like donkey kong and you can’t hardly sew fast enough to keep up with the ideas churning through your brain.

and other times…not so much. all the fabric seems meh. nothing inspires.

but then…THEN. you see a fabric and BOOM! the dress it’s meant to become just jumps into your head like whoa.

this little golden books fabric was one of those. the instant i saw it, i saw a full skirted dress with short sleeves, a peter pan collar, and brown accents.

and boom. this happened:

unfortunately, these are from the same series of pics i talked about here—the ones hampered by a complete lack of interest in the photo taking process by my children. hmph.

not even the addition of a Bribery Lolly helped. she popped it in her mouth like the tiniest james dean and gave me the straight face she does so well. this kid has a whopper of a poker face.

so NO. NO cute photos for you of cute blonde baby/toddlers wearing fluffy full dresses and reading little golden books.

nope. you have to be satisfied with semi-blurry, too dark shots of a grump.

dress details: it buttons up the back with 4 brown buttons. 2 matching buttons on the front center. poofy slip—slightly too big, and thus slipping down—under the skirt, which is as big as i could make it once i cut the bodice pieces from my yard of fabric. bigger IS better, at least when it comes to skirts.

and finally, i’d like to share this little series of photos. proving that no, it’s not all glitter and sunshine in the googiehaus. in case anyone actually thought that (ha).
