A Frock By Friday

I've been watching this one blog that posts "Frock by Friday" tutorials.. You guys know how crazy I get when I find a new project. :) So I went out the other day to buy some fabric to do a "past" frock by Friday. I finished it this weekend so I can join in on the "new" frock by Today. :) Yes, I'm crazy.  So here it is, my coffee date dress.  My first craft for me.

Here are my pattern pieces cut.. 

The finished dress!

Auggie wouldn't let me taken any pictures without him.

The ruffle detail.  The dress looks black, but it's actually blue.  Ignore the puckering on the bodice.

On another note, Baby Beean is still booming!  We've been getting some hits to our website (that still need so much work). I stocked up on some of our favorite fabrics and serged all of them... so if you need a cover, they're ready to go!  We've also been making some changes with the labels, seams, etc... so you can also order a SECOND cover if you need one. :)

If you order a cover now, you'll get our "new" label on them now. :)

They grow up so fast...

In 9 days my baby cousin, the youngest of all the cousins, is going to be getting married! I can't believe how quickly time has passed and I can't believe Aili will be a wife!  For the three weddings that our family has had, I've made each bride a wedding veil (did you know you can make one really cheaply instead of paying hundreds of dollars??).  Mine was a cathedral length, and both my sister's were fingertip length.

So Aili follows in our tradition... I hope to make one for her older sisters one day *hint hint* :).  I made this very thin one (the bride wanted a fuller one) that I gave it to Elizabeth to play with.  She LOVES it.  When she wears it, it makes me so sad to think that one day my baby will be (God willing) someone's wife...

 She's not posing, just watching TV.

Now she's posing..

My little baby's growing up.  She put the crown and dress on herself.

I'm trying to convince my husband to have another baby, but he said, "No!" hahah. We'll see about that...
