Contrary to what you may believe, I am still alive and aware that I have a blog that has been terribly neglected. Life has been incredibly busy and exciting and full. It's summer now, which should allow time for me to catch you up on all of our adventures. I must say, though, that summer itself tends to be full and I'd rather be outside with my family summering than sitting in front of this here computer, but I will do my best to share all things exciting or crafty.
Craftiness is Not Optional. It was such a simple, yet uniquely adorable, dress to make. You can find the tutorial for it here. The only thing I changed was adding a nice, big box pleat to the front to accommodate running, jumping, swinging, and other activities that may happen while wearing this dress. It lacks only one thing...the perfect bird buttons. I love covered buttons and thought I might make some, but I just know I am going to find just the right little birds to sew on the bodice to make it perfect.
