Jessica the seamstress!

So lately since the weather has been super nice, I've gotten into the habit of making dresses for Olivia. So far I've made 3, but 1 of them doesn't fit her because I didn't take her measurements (just sort of eyeballed her), but the others fit just fine. I'm so excited to be able to do this for my baby girl, but sort of sad that there's nothing I can really make the boys. In the winter I plan on making them some pajama pants, but that's about all we think would look good on them that's homemade. Besides the dresses, I made us some curtains. There a bit off, but you can't really tell. I got a little lazy with them too, and instead of making panels at the top to hang them from rings I just sewed the 2 layers together. They serve their purpose and that's all that counts.

So this last week I've been sick with a bad cold and had no energy. I feel a little better this week, but I have all 3 kids because of Easter vacation. I'm sort of sad that I won't be able to sew that much this week, but we've been having a blast together! I've been super impressed with myself and my creative ability lately, and I feel like I'm fitting that stereotype of the sahm or old fashioned mom (whichever it is) but I actually like that stereotype. Anyways enough jabbering on for today, enjoy the pictures of Olivia's dresses!
