I love to wear dresses. I definitely feel like I was born in the wrong era (until I remember epidurals…I’m glad I have those). The problem is that I have really high standards when it comes to finding a dress. Besides the style and pattern of the fabric, and ease of wear (hello! I have 3 small, dirty children), I need the dress to be modest! Why is it so hard to find something with a high neck line, sleeves, and knee length skirt?
Luckily, Kate from See Kate Sew, created a really fabulous add-on to her penelope peplum shirt pattern! This pattern was the cure for all of my dress woes. Seriously.
So here’s how my penelope peplum dress turned out…
I got the knit fabric from Joann’s; I just love a good floral, don’t you? I am not the best seamstress in the world, and haven’t worked with very many knits, but thanks to a great pattern, my dress turned out great! I definitely plan on making another one…and I think I might add a cute peter pan collar to the next one!
I usually take pictures when the littles are sleeping, and I should probably stick to that. They are OBSESSED with the camera for some reason! What is it with babies and electronics?
Luckily, they are pretty cute co-stars!
