Before & After

So going through some photos and I have quite a few before & after shots I wanted to share.

Our Home:
this before is before before~ like before i was preg and before we had a toddler...hence the extreme clean :)
HOME 061

the after --ahh i love. after having always moved in the fall, its nice to have something bright & spring-y. Plus i think it personally reflects the now-me much better. -- the wide angle lens doesn't hurt either.

And since i don't have a before of the dress -- which would really just be a pile of yummy fabric...here's the dress as all nice & pressed.

and just to toot my own horn a bit. this was my FIRST ever pattern! As most of you know- i love to sew, but i really felt like its time to up the ante a bit. This was a super simple pattern to begin with and despite a (few) minor panic attacks about fit...i couldn't be happier with how it turned out.
(for anyone interested it's the modkid - frida dress with michael miller fabric)

Awesome! wow our place looks cool. and G's not so bad either! :-) that dress rocks oh and the material seems like high quality. It certainly was put through the test with G and survived very well even strawberry stains.
