pretty


It's prom season.

I can cross one more thing off my pre-baby to-do list. I delivered this little number to a girl in my neighborhood the other day. Her dress needed some alterations, and she wanted a pretty little shrug to go with it.

I would wear this in a heartbeat. If only I had a waist. And I was going to the prom.

I have one more sewing project to do before the baby comes. Then I am officially retiring my sewing machine for a few months so I can sit and stare at him all day long.

  1. This is so beautiful. I couldn't be trusted in a dress that looked so fresh and white though. There'd be pasta sauce/chocolate/red wine or something like that down it in no time!

  2. Can I ask what pattern you used for the shrug?? My best friend has asked me to wear a strapless dress for her wedding in September...not gonna work, so I have been looking for a good shrug pattern.

  7. Absolutely adorable!
    It is so hard to find cute, modest cover-ups for strapless dresses.
