So over the weekend I dusted off the sewing machine and actually started some new projects.
After cleaning the whole basement and sorting through my abundant stacks of fabric I came across the African fabric Nate had brought back for me from Rwanda. (Best souvenir ever!!)
I wanted each dress to be different so I just started cutting into the fabric and a few hours later I had 3 finished dresses and a skirt for me!
[my floor length skirt]
[late night inspiration with my head attire]
The girls wanted to put the dresses on right away (that's a good sign I did something right!) so we had an impromptu fashion show with Daddy and Bubba as spectators.
[this girl is made for a runway]
[back detail with button]
[Rosie's dress I made a pattern for and hoped it would turn out]
Now we all have a souvenir from Africa!!
I have a lot of fabric left but haven't decided what to do with it yet.
It will keep until I have another overly ambitious night with nothing else to do. LOL
