I’m back today with Nikko Dress number two of three for 2018! As you may remember, I fell in love with this dress earlier this year when I sewed up my dusty pink version LINK and realized how well it worked with my pregnant belly. I had a couple of other rib knits in my fabric stash, and immediately cut out two more colorways – this lovely teal version, and another in olive green. The olive green is still sitting on my table, waiting for a free minute to be sewn up, but this lovely one was the next top priority. I wanted something to wear to my baby shower with my Oklahoma friends and family that would show off my pretty pink earrings, without going over the top head to toe pink. This color was the perfect option – a color I love, that pairs great with pink, and worked perfectly for my second Nikko vision.
I can’t believe this is now my fourth post of 2018 with the IndieSew Blogger Team! IndieSew has long been one of my favorite fabric and pattern sources, and it has been such a pleasure to be blogging with them over the past year. To close out this year’s IBT posts, I’ve got a super cute, super comfortable leggings and sweater combo – perfect to see me through the end of pregnancy, and some chillier weather on the other side!
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!
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!
