It was a perfect opportunity, again, to do some sewing. With the warm weather we have been having for the past days, I wanted Skye to wear something light and comfortable even while playing. I have a couple of yards of IKEA fabric that I purchased from our community thrift shop when I was still pregnant. Cost? If I'm not mistaken I got it for $5 or maybe $6.
This was supposed to be a peasant dress. Just like the polka dot peasant dress I made for Ryne. However, I didn't have a pattern and Skye was at school so I guesstimated the portions when I cut the fabric. I love how the sleeves, as a result of over-cutting the fabric, turned out. I'm imagining Skye wearing this during winter with long sleeves warmer, matching tights and mid-calf boots.

|Love this fabric!|

My husband, at my request, took some pictures of his princess for me. Unlike me, Jeff doesn't like asking people to take picture of himself or of us. He doesn't like bringing a tripod, regardless of the size. It's no wonder they came home with my camera full of Skye's but not a single picture of them together. Thank you for the effort, Hon!
|Where's the barbecue?|
|"I want up, Daddy."|
|That smile is priceless!|
It's time for me to catch some sleep. Have an awesome day!
