Today I sewed this Princess play dress for my daughter. It's a "Simplicity" costume pattern. She chose the fabrics and they were a bit difficult to work with. I am glad it's finished as I have been promising to sew it for a year. I sewed a size 5 and it's a bit big but she'll get more playtime out of it. I asked her if I should hem it up but she said no. She likes it draping onto the floor. :)

I also bought a Baby Sleeping Bag pattern from Straight Grain so I can start sewing those up for the impending new arrival to our family. I went for my ultrasound on Thursday and we have been told 17.5 months (so about 18 months along now). I want a couple Straight Grain's dress patterns as well. We are pretty sure this baby is a girl but I am waiting until the next ultrasound to start sewing with pink. :)
Camille Roskelley posted a great link on her blog for a YouTube tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Co. and I will absolutely be sewing some of these darling receiving blankets up as soon as I can get my hands on some cute flannels.
As usual, there are a million more things I want to sew but I think I did pretty well this week. This was on top of working full time at the fire hall and taking my kids to music lessons, piano practices etc. (Still working on the laundry!) Happy Easter and happy long weekend sewing to all of you!
