Who knew...

Who knew pattern sewing was not as hard as I thought it would be... I have actually ventured into it a few times recently (additional project pictures to follow soon I hope) 
The pattern is the popular Hopscotch dress by Oliver and S 

The blue one was worn about a hundred times before I got around to taking a picture. The green one was my second attempt and I borrowed Mums serger.
I made them in the 12-18 size and they fit Bella perfectly now (8 months) the arms are just a little long. 
She is growing up so quickly that I can barely remember her small. 
She finally has a second tooth coming in (as of last Sunday) and though she managed it a few times before, today is the first time that I feel she has truly grasped the forward motion crawling. It's very goofy, she kind of drags and hoists herself forward. She of course screams at you the whole time because she knows you could just give her what she wants with out all the exercise and that makes her so angry.  Hoping my chunky monkey will thin out just enough that her shorts stop cutting of circulation to her legs (you think I kid)
Don't get me wrong though I love every bit of this chunky girl and her fat cheeks.

  2. She is JUST like Ava! extremely chunky and saucy! Is Bella crazy too? Because Ava is certifiable. Soooo lovable and horrible at the same time. I LOVE this top. I love making this top. I love Oliver + S. And I'm so happy you are making clothing! It's fun and rewarding (making kids clothes not adult clothes. When that goes wrong it's devastating). These look as though you've been sewing clothes forever:) Love them and love that fat baby. She needs a bikini.

    1. She is crazy! Funny and lovable and cute but certifiable. It's going to be so much fun to see how her spunky personality develops!

  4. I'm both incredibly impressed, and not at all surprised. I'm afraid of patterns. I've only tried a few, and then, only very easy ones. I tried a slightly more difficult one once, but screwed it up so badly that I had to have Corinnea save it for me. But you don't make anything that isn't just amazing, so how could this be anything different? You and your mom are two peas in a pod, I swear. :)

    PS: I LOVE chunky babies!!
