Monaco Swim Trunks, Tutu Cute Swimsuit

This summer we got the kiddos a little/big pool. So of course there is daily swimming, which requires suits. And more suits. So what's a sewing mama to do?? 

Navy. Stripes. Green.
What more could you ask for!?

Matchy, but not.

The baby glows. No sun for that sweet baby skin!!

Soleil Dress // Numérot Trois

Wednesday, July 1, 2015

It was a sad, sad day when I realized O had very much outgrown the two Soleil's I made for her last summer. They were easily her most worn mama-made's. 

Of course I had to make her a new one!

But, details.

I changed this one up with details! I color blocked a 3" strip at the hem, and used the same solid mint for the back bodice, but overlay-ed it with a stretch lace. The front side of the pockets are also solid mint, but that's a fun detail, just because, sewing magic.

Welcome // Baby

 Things have been quiet around this space in the last 10 months...

Not so much in every day life though. Our little family grew by one huge blessing that came in the form of this tiny little bundle.

I have always thought children were huge blessings and could not have been more grateful for the first two we were given. Or so I thought. Until I experienced the loss of not one, but two, no matter how early on, they were my babies. 

And now to have been blessed with this third little miracle. My heart explodes with gratefulness. He has been prayed for harder than I have ever prayed for anything in my life. It seemed that every step of my pregnancy with him, God asked yet again, do you trust me? The answer was always yes. Even when it was so hard and I wanted to be afraid. 

We are all so completely in love.

And he rewards us daily with his squishy, delicious goodness, happiest of smiles and laughs.

And I can't have a post without some sewing talk...

I haven't stopped sewing!! It hasn't been as frequent but there is still sewing going on! And now that we are emerging from the newborn fog, I hope to visit here a bit more frequently. In fact, I may even break the rules and post twice today. The next one with a sewing project!

It's good to be here again. I've missed it.
