Clearly, the Josephine dress by Violette Field Threads is one I enjoy making Camden.
|I promise, btw, that I tried to pat the dress down, but I don't know what happened|
|She wanted to do this post, LOL|
The pattern, as usual, works up nicely, and I actually had also started a blouse version, as I always like to do a couple-few at a time, but I need to finish it up and pair it with some more Whitney trousers, also by VFT....I suppose I should find fabric for that project!
|This dress insists on sticking out at that placket, LOL|
Camden is enjoying her once-a-week class through her charter school, and she is taking both choir and guitar, which is great! I'm so happy she gets to have fun with friends, even if it's just for a few hours. MOM FAIL ALERT, though: Some moms pick up their kids LATE at the end of a school day.....I accidentally picked Camden up an hour earlier than normal. As it is, she is only able to attend 2.5 hours of the school day, because she leaves half an hour early for ballet. For some reason, I was SO OFF last week (partly because I didn't have Tiberius with me, and I'd just had a massage and a rushed work-out - which clearly didn't need to be rushed ) that I showed up and grabbed her at 2:30, rather than 3:30, and I didn't realize it until we'd changed clothing at the ballet studio. I felt so bad that she'd missed so much class time...and bad for myself, LOL, because it was the LAST of the totally kid-free 20 ours I had! Tiberius was staying with his grandparents up in WA, and I was able to sew HIM two shirts and a pair of pants while Camden was at a sleepover, which was awesome!! Anyway, that will not happen again - oops!
In fact, stay tuned for the blog post detailing Tiberius's new duds - and hopefully one in the not-too-distant future about the Whitney trousers and Josephine blouse!!
