I'll be 39 weeks pregnant this week and things around here are getting nesty! Really nesty.
In terms of getting things ready for baby, Indigo has been my trusty sidekick and righthand girl.
She loves to go through baby clothes with me, sort our cloth diapers, and most importantly, ooo and ahhh over how cute and tiny everything is. It makes getting ready for our baby even more fun!
I also organized my fabrics
and have been working on some small sewing projects which have been on my (imaginary) To-Make list for forever but got buried. Literally (by fabric) and figuratively.
This week is Kids Clothes Week and I hope to sew few things for our baby before my lovely sister-in-law and niece come to stay with us on Thursday for a long weekend together. They live in Cambodia but are here in the US for a couple of months. We can't wait to see them!
In my effort to keep up with my girl who is growing like a weed, I made another Bohemian Babydoll Dress. Unlike her sisters, she's not on the receiving end of any hand-me-downs, so it's harder to keep her closet adequately stocked with mama-mades. :)
This dress is fast and easy and Indigo wears her first version all the time.
I made both dresses in Nani Iro double gauze. I love this fabric! It isn't quite as soft and floaty as the other fabric for whatever reason, but it's still so nice. It's called Woodblock Pocho Garland in Mustard and I got it here.
I altered the sleeves again. I had misplaced the sleeve that Dan drafted for me, but I looked at this photo and was able to easily re-draft it. I finished the edge with a zigzag stitch which makes it fray a little. I like that.
I love the curved bodice!
And look! No closures!
I also love the asymmetrical hem. This pattern is definitely one of my favs!
And with that, I better get back to nesting. Or at least dishes and laundry. There are always those.
