Shades of Me Spring Green!


Quite a while ago, I got a message from a friend with a link saying, "Quick! Go sign up and I'll fill you in later!" So, I said, "OKAY!" and signed up! 
Later I found out that it was to the Shades of Me series and man I was stoked! There are some majorly awesome women participating in this and I was so excited to be in it with them! 
Then reality kind of hit me. I've made a couple of things here and there but I really haven't broken in to "ME" sewing. 


I've had this fabric for AGES and I've been waiting and waiting for the perfect thing to make out of it. 
I just LOVE the bright bold colors of the flowers on the background of green.
Definitely screams "Spring" to me.

About the converse shoes......yeah, I'm not a girly girl and you will never see me in anything fancier.
But I can totally rock a dress with them.


Ooh! And this dress has pockets! Great place to store my "stop the kids from screaming while in public places" snacks!

I also used a regular green zipper rather than an invisible one.

This pattern was perfect! Super easy to make and just the "ice-breaker" (bad pun cause I wish I could make all the ice and snow around me disappear) I needed into making stuff for me!



Someone also had the audicity to tell me that my children get their silly-stinkerness from me.....

.........as if!



Go check out the incredibly talented Laura and Mie and the rest of the amazing women on this tour and link up with what you've been sewing!

  22. Karly, you're LOVELY in the GREEN floral dress sewn for the SHADES of ME series! Converse shoes add the right "touch" to your ensemble. The Caroline dress pattern seems like a conservative style, yet the bright flowers with green background make it FAB! Sarah Helene in Minneapolis
