It’s time for some serious football here in Dallas!! When OU and UT meet up for football every October, it’s a pretty big deal in my group of people. Despite living in Texas, my husband and I bleed crimson and cream, and I needed to make sure I had something to wear to this year’s gameday that would fit over this giant 36-week bump, and clearly let everyone know which side I’m on! See what I came up with on the blog this morning!
I’m very excited to share this one with you guys, especially because this pattern is on SALE today! Even though it was almost 90’F in Dallas yesterday, I’m starting to get so excited about autumn. I’ve been collecting sweater knits for weeks now, and daydreaming about all of the great sweaters I want to make for this season. Sweaters, leggings, and booties are my go-to uniform this time of the year, and I love incorporating shades of crimson and turquoise in with the warm neutrals of autumn. I’ve brought quite a few of these elements into the outfit for today’s post!
Happy September Reveal Day!! I don’t know why, but when I printed off this .pdf pattern it seemed ridiculously daunting to me. I’m not sure if it was the fact that the first page housed two tiny pattern pieces amongst other important information, or the number of pages, but when I printed it I immediately started brainstorming ways to avoid moving forward with this pattern – which is so silly, because I have truly waited ALL year to make this dress! The final result of my Fringe Dress is up on the blog today!
As the weeks grow closer and closer, and my husband and I start thinking about preparing our hospital bags, I have been overwhelmed with all of the cute matching sets that are coming at me from every angle on Pinterest and Instagram! The mama in me wanted to order them all, but the sewist in me knew that I would cherish them so much more if I made them myself… So earlier this month, exactly 2 months from our little girl’s due date, I whipped up our first matching set – a comfortable knit robe for me to wear in the hospital, and a matching sleeper gown for baby! All topped with a big pink bow.
