I finally made myself a little something for the first time in a few months. I had the wonderful opportunity of receiving this Boho Frock Dress Pattern from creator Cheryl Kuczek to sew up. It was just what I needed to get back in sewing saddle you could say.
It's such a great little dress. I accidentally made mine a little shorter than I had intended, so I might go back and add some ruffles on the bottom, but I like that is like a tunic and I can wear it with jeans and leggings.
I used a black and white gingham so it would be light weight. This type of style isn't flattering on me at all if I use a heavy cotton fabric, but the gingham worked great.
I decided to put the waist band part on the outside of mine after I laid it on there and thought it would be pretty that way.
I also decided to keep mine short sleeved since where we live it's usually warm. I can wear it more of the year this way.
For pics, Will humored me and took us on a little adventure to try a new area out. We headed up to a nature trail at UWF (what a beautiful campus btw). We have been there before and it was fun to do a bit more exploring. You know it's going to be good when there are warning signs for alligators and poisonous snakes ;) Gotta love Florida!
The oldest had a blast! So much open space to run around in. Plus, she kept looking for those alligators and snakes. She really wanted to see one! Fortunately, she didn't see any, but she did get to see lots of fish and even a turtle. Will and I both laughed at how we must have looked since we were trying to take pics on this heavily walked trail (everyone else was in exercise clothes and all). Then princess had to carry her American flag with her and we had baby in a stroller trying to go down the very small wooden path. Oh well. At least we all were having fun together!
