Saffron Twirl Dress

It's that time again! This was the very reason I actually started writing a blog. The biggest problem I keep coming up with is what project do I submit?? If you read my last post, you would see I have no shortage of items to choose from. But, I wanted it to be different. Showing off a bit more of my talent.

Then it hit me. For the last few months I have been drafting my own pattern. Slacking at times and needing my awesome sewing posse to kick my butt into gear, and it is nearly completed. I hope....

So, without further ado, I introduce to you:

The Saffron Twirl Dress.

Why did I name it Saffron? Well, Saffron is my little sisters name, who just so happens to share a birthday with me. And no, we are no where close to being twins! It is also what my blog name means in Swahili. Yeah, you better believe I just googled that to make sure!

Here's a whole bunch more pics to show off this dress.

Zoe LOVED twirling in it!

Both my girls were fighting over it today, so we got pics of both wearing it. I think that's the sign that I need to make another....

Here's to hoping I make the contest this season! :D


  1. Absolutely adorable

  2. Chances are that you make it! This dress really is one of the best linked so far. I love the back, no wonder both girls wanted it!!! Good luck!

  3. How lovely! I hope you get to be a contestant! This dress is fantastic! Good Luck Dear!

  4. I just love that last photo! It looks beautiful on her & you have done some serious cuteness with this one!


  5. SOOOO stinking pretty!!! Can I join the fight for the dress. I think I can get it on over one of my thighs....

  6. So so cute!! I hope you make it. I can't bring myself to enter this season. There's so much going on here I'm afraid I wouldn't have the time. But I'd course I'll try to sew along anyway. It would be awesome to see you up there lady :)

  7. Very Cute! I hope you get there!!

  8. Cute dress! I really started sewing more, and especially drafting my own patterns because of Project Run and Play too--and I know you have been sewing along for awhile now (because you always leave such sweet comments!) Just noticed too that you have 5 kids..same as me--my oldest is a boy (8) then insert 3 girls, and another little boy:)Good Luck!
