It was practically like Mother’s Day around here today. Wonderful! Hubs finished the deck he’s been working on for the past week and a half and so took the kids off my hands for the afternoon. Bliss! I slept in, finished the book I’ve been inching through, took a walk on this glorious sun shiny day, ate lunch BY MYSELF at a little local cafe, and made myself a dress!
I have had this red dress, that I picked up at Pin Me Apparel, for several years. It was made by a local designer, but if there ever was a tag it is long gone now. Sorry! Tagless or not, I am constantly getting compliments on it and have been thinking it wouldn’t be hard to reproduce for awhile now. Well, when a complete stranger complimented me on it today while I was strolling through the neighborhood, I decided that was it. I came home and got right to work.
It really wasn’t too hard to make and probably only took me a couple hours, pattern making included. And now that I do have a pattern drawn out, I totally am going to make a few of these.
The fabric I picked up at Mills End back in March. It’s called 207 Herb Garden Botanical and was designed by Valerie Greeley for makower uk. I like it even though, or maybe because, it reminds me of my Mother-in-law’s old kitchen wallpaper. The next one I do may get more embellishment. This one I didn’t even add the tie that is on the original.
Now, to make my wonderful day complete, its back to the Veronica Mars marathon I’ve been watching on Netflix. I totally avoided this show while it was on and now can’t get enough of it. Did you guys see that Sarah Michelle Gellar has a new show coming out in the fall? I also saw that Zooey Deschenal is going to be on the small screen in a sitcom this fall. Weird!
