So....my brother-in-law got married recently and I wanted to make myself a dress for the wedding.
I'm still nursing my baby, and I had bought a too-large dress shirt from the thrift shop thinking I could convert it into a dress.
So, a couple of days before the wedding, after all my other 'must-get-done's' were done, I set to work.
And, the day before the wedding, I got it done.
I tried it on, and my husband says, 'hmm....looks a little frumpy.'
So, I wore a different dress to the wedding--one I've worn to most of our sibling's weddings--one that was a little more elegant.
And, this dress has been delegated as the 'working-at-home-in-the-garden-or-in-the-kitchen' dress.
I still love it.
I can nurse in it, I feel somewhat dressed up at home.
And, I don't feel frumpy--just dressed for work! ha!
Oh, and the Mouse House has a 20% off sale all patterns in her shop right now--just not the bundled Carolyn. Go check it out and use the code SHOWCASE20 .
