Butterfly Jumper

I love summer dresses. The ideal summer dress is light and airy, with bright colors or summer themes. This week I designed a summer jumper for my daughter with butterflies on the font. It uses classic summer prints and textiles: cotton and eyelet.

It is basically a bib front with a full skirt. The skirt is connected in the front to the bib and gathered by elastic in the back. Then I added straps just to keep the dress in place.

 Maybe I will make a pattern for this jumper. Would you be interested? Are you working on any dresses to get ready for summer?

Welcome to the Blog

Hello everyone, thanks for coming to check out my blog. I am one of the co-authors of A Couple of Craft Addicts but I wanted to start my own path and create a blog where I can share my sewing projects as well as parenting experiences. Right now I am a mom of 2 children with my 3rd on the way due in October. I love my children and love that I have the opportunity to stay at home to raise them. I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and that has been a major influence in my life. I like to think that the Lord guides my decisions and helps me to know what is most important in my life. My children have also helped me to grow as a person and a mother. My husband is my biggest supporter in all my sewing and crafting endeavors. I am a very lucky person and I can't wait to share my experiences with all of you.
