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. :)
