Back to School


My baby starts Kindergarten tomorrow morning.  I don’t know if I should be sad, or really really REALLY excited.  I’m leaning toward the latter… She’s kind of boisterous and I think we’re ready for a break from each other.  In true Holly fashion, I finished her 1st day of School jumper with 13 hours to spare.  I work better under pressure I think ^_^. 

This is the Martha Pullen A-line jumper pattern modified to have just a top inner lining, instead of being fully lined.  It’s just too hot for that sort of mess right now.  And as an added bonus, she’s required to wear shorts under her dresses this year.  It’s a red chambray fabric that is thick enough that you can’t see through it, so the 1/2 lining worked just fine.  Better in fact, given that there isn’t all of this fabric to turn as there usually is. 

The appliqué is from Sew Many Designs.  These designs have always stitched out perfectly.  The digitizing is FABULOUS…  I’m really jealous of digitizers… even with the “mack daddy” program that came with my Creative Vision (4D Embroidery Suite) I still don’t have the guts to try my hand at it.

I love it, that's so cute and such a sweet first day of school dress. I had a little one come in a dress with a school themed jacket that her mommy made it was so adorable. You'll daughter will probably stand out in your teacher's mind.
