It's been very fall-chilly around Chicagoland lately. Which I love because I get kind a crazy creative energy in the fall. It's definitely my favorite season of the year. But next week it's supposed to get up into the 90's again. The only bright spot about the hotness is that daughter can wear the awesome dress that PlumTickled sent us as a gift from her Etsy dress shop (not to be confused with her awesome fabric shop).
When I first opened the package I thought she had sent me a skirt and I couldn't figure out why the sizing was so big. Daughter even wore it as a skirt a few days before it dawned on me that it was actually a dress. This should come as no surprise since I frequently button the wrong buttons and wear black bras with white tee shirts.
Don't you love their little backs? Those shoulder blades look like she just shed her angel wings. Though the dreamy lens action you see is not a filter. It's son using the camera to take pictures of his lego creations and greasing up the lens with mac and cheese fingers.
Though I'm not as talented as the generous Plum Tickled, I did manage to make this cute little swing top from a vintage 50's pattern. I like it and want to try again with some corduroy for fall. But this time I'll be adding a big pocket in the front and making the shoulders a wee bit narrower.
