Can you believe that it is already mid June? 2019 is half over! Today, I’m showing off the matching outfits my little one and I wore for Mother’s Day… back in May!! We’re a bit behind over here. Thanks for bearing with me – parenthood takes priority to quick turnarounds for blog posts these days, but I’m still getting them out!
I’m so happy to be bringing you guys another Wacky Wednesday post this week! If you haven’t come across one of my these posts before, Wacky Wednesday is an awesome promotion that Ellie and Mac Patterns runs on a weekly basis featuring a handful of their patterns on sale for ONE DOLLAR!! Yep, that’s right. ONE DOLLAR. So take a look – if you’re looking for a great knit romper pattern, especially one with lots of great customization options, this just might be your lucky day!!
I picked out this fabric back in September, when I was still VERY pregnant, and the cool weather was starting to think about settling in. I knew it was destined to be a pencil skirt, but I also knew that this meant that it would be sitting on my shelf, waiting a while – the colors didn’t really scream autumn or winter, and my belly wasn’t super accommodating to a pencil skirt silhouette at the time! So off to the shelf it went, waiting for the conditions to be just right. It’s been about 80F pretty regularly lately, so I’d say conditions are good.
If you follow my Instagram stories, you may have seen that the Bella Wrap Top was in my January / February plans in a smoky blue rayon jersey that I had leftover in my stash. However, when I actually pulled my fabric out, I didn’t even have half the amount needed for the top! I was super bummed, because I’d been really excited about the idea of starting each couple of months with a clear plan for my sewing. Even though my original fabric didn’t work out, I was able to stick to my original pattern plans while trying out this fun speckled knit. Check out the full post over on the Minerva Crafts blog today!
