It’s not too late to post an Easter dress in August is it? No, I didn’t think so.
Clover’s hide and seek dress – an Oliver and S pattern – never got the photo shoot that I wanted for it. I decided to skip processing these shots and do a second shoot, but you know life. A million other things. New posts to write, babies who need tending, homeschool freakouts etc. Plus, I committed the mortal sin of sewing a dress with sleeves, which means it would suffer sure death in the back of Clover’s dresser drawer. I don’t think she’s ever worn it again. Anyone in the market for a super comfy double cloth dress with the bodice lining accidentally sewn in wrong side out? Lol.
I actually wish I had this in my size. It’s really soft and comfy, and the gathers would conveniently hide any mom fat I have going on in the front. This fabric combination really speaks to me too. The double cloth chambray is some I bought from fabric.com before I even knew what double cloth was or had seen anyone use it. What a lovely surprise when I got it in the mail. Nobody else knew what it was either, and I was caught trying to describe in words how nice and pillowy like double gauze it is.
Fabric.com doesn’t even appear to have this stuff anymore, but the Imagine Gnats shop has some in checks that I’ve got coming in the mail. Also the shorts I just made for shorts on the line are made in double cloth.
The yoke is art gallery fabric that I bought at Finch Sewing Studio – it’s part of the Meadow line by Leah Duncan, which I love
The welt pockets in this are really cool
Obligatory hide and seek shot. Lol
Clover already looks older to me now that she did when I took these pictures. Life is a vapor!
In other news, I’m still trying to feel out the whole homeschool thing – trying to build a rhythm and personal style that suits us, and hopefully some confidence as well. Some days I feel like Maria singing on the mountain tops for a few minutes at a time, and others I just wonder if I can really pull this off.
