Make Something Monday #16

Make Something Monday

I've had my eye on this reversible sundress pattern for a while from Sew Baby, and it was on sale last week. So I finally got it. I used some of the fabric that I made Ivy a skirt from a while back for one side of it. It is reversible, but I didn't have enough of the fabrics from Ivy's skirt to do the other side. So I used another fabric that I had in my stash and turned out to be a really good match with colors, although a bit hard to tell from the pictures. It's a little big on her now, but she'll grow quickly into it, I'm sure.

The dress went together pretty quickly because it is made from just one pattern piece. You sew the two sides together and then turn right-side out and top-stitch, add buttons or snaps and it's done. I finished the whole thing from start to finish while she napped! I need to get a couple more of these thrown together for summer dresses. I think they'd be cute embellished with some embroidery or applique.

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
