Blue Skies Are Callin’ Dress

IMG_8589This is the sleeveless and cowl-less variation of my Verity dress/shirt pattern. I cut this one out before I made the changes to the pattern that I noted with this version from earlier this summer. That’s why the bodice is still too short. Oh, well. Who cares? I still like it. :)

Daydreamer Dress Raffle for St. Jude

I mentioned a few months back that I was planning to do the Warrior Dash in May. I officially signed up for the race a couple of weeks ago, and I’m so excited that my husband will be doing it with me, along with my sister-in-law and her husband.

I also signed up to be a St. Jude Warrior. So, in an effort to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, I have planned a couple of raffles for this month…You are, of course, welcome to donate any amount to St. Jude without entering the raffle. Please follow this link if you would like to help.

The first raffle is for this fun and flirty sundress.

“Better late than never” dress

This was my Easter dress this year. It was bright and perfect for such a celebratory day…I started making this dress a little over a year ago, and put it aside for one reason or another. In my effort to make progress on my UFO pile, I pulled it out about a month ago. Continue reading
