I took a break from sewing these past two months. Part of that is due to Christmas and our tree taking up my sewing corner, and part of it is due to me just feeling plain tired after the kids are in bed, and the other part is I just didn't feel like sewing. So I didn't. A couple of days ago I decided to kind of force myself to sew something that Avery desperately needed: a warm dress for church. Our first Wyoming winter is kind of kicking our tails.
I decided to sew a dress out of a pattern I have seen a million times, but never really thought was for me. For whatever reason it just seemed like the perfect winter dress, so I bought the pattern at full price (which I RARELY do), and took the plunge. I present to you our my version of a Warm and Cozy Modern Belle Dress, by Lil Luxe Collection.
Avery absolutely loves wearing this dress. It is just the softest flannel ever. And I think she really appreciates the warmth, especially since the heat in our church building has been a little sketchy the past couple of weeks. It was 2 degrees this morning, sooooo ya.
I'm so glad I forced myself to finally start stitching away and creating again. It does me so much good, and it has definitely awakened the sewing beast within. I am back to literally dreaming about creations I've put together in my brain. Now I just need to time and energy to turn all those fantasies into reality....
