almost fall

there’s something that the close of july does to me. i don’t know if it’s the imminent promise of fall, or the hope that the dog days of summer will be short this year. but every year around this time, i get bit by a crafty bug.

and while my mom will tell you (and i will wholeheartedly agree) that zoe does not need any clothing, i find myself incapable of resisting the charms of creating children’s clothing.

today, i chopped up a pillowcase and made her a dress. and while the dress is approximately an 18month size dress, it has adjustable straps, so it can grow (a little) with her. and i might even try to get her in it now. just for the sake of pictures. but only after she gets up from her nap.

here’s the dress, almost finished. i just needed to sew on some buttons, and get the side closures just right.
