ery year of my girl’s life, I’ve made her a special outfit to celebrate her birthday in. The first two years were pretty dresses. Her third birthday fell just shortly after her Tio’s wedding, so we decided that she’d wear the pretty dress we made for the rehearsal for her birthday party to keep up the pretty dress tradition. But this year, my girl was old enough to make a special request of her own for an outfit.
It’s time to get cozy, and Staystitch Pattern Co. is ready for it. Lindsey and Candice have launched their newest pattern this week – a cozy sweatshirt with some great details, perfect for looking cute on the couch when the weather outside gets frightful! I had the pleasure of testing the pattern, and have been loving my version of the sweatshirt!
It is OCTOBER! Time really flies – I’m more than halfway through my 12 week maternity leave, which is very bittersweet. We have an exciting month ahead of us in October. My brother-in-law will finally get married, after many COVID-related delays. My baby girl will turn THREE years old! And we will celebrate Halloween… Maybe in a more typical fashion than last year? Remains to be seen. I normally stay VERY up to date on posting my makes here on the blog, but as I’ve had some time to look through photos while I’ve been on maternity leave, I’ve realized that I missed a couple over the past year! Luckily, this one is just as relevant this year as it would’ve been last year, especially if you are looking for a fun (and simple!) family Halloween costume to DIY this month!
I picked out this beautiful, cream lurex sweater knit with ideas of an oversized comfy cardigan that I could wear at home throughout my 12-week maternity leave. I couldn’t decide between my go-to cardigan pattern, the Helen’s Closet Blackwood Cardigan, or trying out a new pattern in the form of the True Bias Marlo. So naturally, as I decided between those two… I settled on a two piece lounge set that has nothing to do with cardigans! Classic.
