A Lunch-y sort of DRESS!

Goodness knows I LOVE TO SEW! and boy howdy, do I love to sew for my girl. She inspires me so much. How can I not want to drape this beauty in pretty colors every single day?


It's a darn good thing I've got connections! :) Jessica, from Happy Together, did it again. She lured me into this really FABULOUS thing called, TEST SEWING! There really isn't a better gig out there. Jessica does all sort of crazy planning, designing, making, and making again, then she just asks me if I want to test sew one of her patterns.....all non-challant and everything, and I loudly scream, YES! And this is born....


The Out for Lunch Dress is Adorable with a capital AWEEEEEEEEEEEE! (that a high pitched squeal.)


I just grabbed some fabric from my stash.....yes, my stash is embarrassingly large....and I thre this together. The pattern is so easy and fun. I may have been seen with a goofy grin plastered to my face for an entire week after making this dress. Then it was back for a week after I took the pictures of Miss Sugar Bear in it. :) :) :)


We love it! ♥ and it's comfy, too.

May0811_0015ew, perfect, really.


Yes, I'm tooting my own horn here. I did good, don't you think? Okay...So Jessica is the genius, but I rocked this sewing job, yes? (girls got a right to feel a little proud now and again.)


I made a fun hair pretty to match. It was the first time I've made this particular fabric flower. I only burned my finger TWICE with the hot glue. I'm awesome like that. :)


Love the buttons. ♥

But honestly......this dress could be made out of a burlap sack, and some mud, and this girl would make it shine. ♥


If you'd like to win a copy of this fun pattern, please head on over to Jessica's blog to enter to win one. :) How fun is that?

Thanks, Jessica! You rock the lunch-y dress party!

I know this is all about the dress....but sorry I see the most adorable little girl model...I don't even see the dress....I see the poses, the expressions, how this little girl is growing from a baby to a big girl in front of my eyes...
She is beautiful.....
