Happy Mother’s Day!
I couldn’t wait to wear my dress today and to give my sister her Mother’s Day present. We sent our mother some gorgeous flowers.
First up is my sister’s present. I used this fabric necklace tutorial by Tilly and added my own touches. I remembered I had some wooden beads in my stash and experimented with large and small beads, with and without knots in between until I found a pattern I liked. Do you recognize the fabric? It’s from 3 hour long “20 minute” skirt I made way back when. I thought the colors in the print went well with the wooden beads.
I wore my third incarnation of M6069 in the Missoni-esque print. Again, this pattern is a real winner. This time I asked my sister to get a picture of the back pattern piece. If you will recall, instead of using the drape back, I substituted the square neck front pattern as my back to make it more work-appropriate and easier to wear as it doesn’t slip off my shoulders at all. I wonder if anyone would notice, if I wore all three versions next week, that they were all from the same dress pattern with no variation of the dress at all except the fabric. Hmmm… sounds like an experiment to me!
I hope all the mothers out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I sure did. And Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom. I love you Mom!
