Life Update!

Hello there- just a quick but important post today! It’s been a moment since I last posted and not for a lack of projects, but more a lack of energy! I shared some news over on my Instagram a few months ago, but wanted to share here too. Drew and I are expecting a baby girl in March 2023! The time has been going so fast, and it’s been a bit harder to stay on top of everything – like updating the blog – but I wanted to share even if it’s a bit later than planned!

I’ve been going through all the tests, scans, and doctors appointments, which can be very overwhelming, but I’m so happy Drew has been by my side for everything. We’ve been putting together the nursery, building a registry and trying to prepare ourselves (which is much easier said than done!). I’m thankful to be feeling well and doing much better than during the first trimester and over the past few weeks it’s been really exciting to feel baby kicks but not so exciting to be growing out of all my clothes!

We took “announcement” photos at a local park and I made my dress for the occasion! I used the Margot Dress from Dressmaking Amore on Etsy, and purchased fabric from Core Fabric Store.

I absolutely love this dress pattern! I wanted a drop waist design and something a little oversized so it could grow with me. I also added back ties, which I forgot to photograph! It is a shorter dress, so if you are taller you may want to consider adding a tier or making the tiers longer. But for my short legs, the length was perfect!

The fabric I bought was from Core Fabric Store (they also stock deadstock and eco-friendly fabrics!). I used Sandwashed Textured Tencel in Moss. It’s a beautiful, light fabric and I love the color.

I’m excited to share the news to those who might not have seen it on Insta, and I’m really excited to sew lots of baby things! I have a few plans for clothes including using up a bunch of my scraps for tiny outfits! I’m also working on finishing up some past projects that I would like done before I don’t get as much time in my studio!
