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.....
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!
