I wanted to post an update on the Little Dresses for Africa project.
This weekend, I received a dress from my friend, Lisa. [sidebar: Lisa owns a fabulous online store called Full Circle Baby. She has a wide selection of cloth diapers, baby carriers and more! I bought my maya wrap from her and Indigo lived in it for the first few months of her life. Awesome! Go check out her stuff!] Back to the dress, Lisa made this dress for Little Dresses for Africa:
Isn't it so pretty?! And the picture does not do it justice, either. The ribbon detailing is so beautiful! Lisa did such a nice job! I just know this dress is going to bring a little girl so much joy! Thank you, Lisa!
This weekend I sent out the invitations for the Little Dresses for Africa party that I am hosting at the end of September. So far, 7 people have confirmed that they will be attending but we may have up to 12 people participating! I cannot wait to see all of the beautiful dresses that are made that day!
Oh, and unrelated to LDFA, but related to sewing, this weekend, I made this Christmas kimono pajama set for my friend Dell's baby, who we shall welcome into this world in late Oct/early November.
I am waiting to put the elastic into the waistband until I can get a measurement on the little guy/girl. Can you tell by the themes of my recent sewing projects, that this Texas resident is hoping for some cooler weather?!
In ten minutes we will have been waiting 3 months for our referral. But more on that tomorrow.
