My Favorite Dress

Butterick 4790
Originally uploaded by nihonnofx

This is yet ANOTHER Butterick "whirl away" dress. I adore this dress and wish it fit my post pregnancy body. Hopefully it will fit again...soon? If you haven't tried this pattern yet, I would say you definitely should. The only problems with this pattern are that sometimes the front likes to "fly up" because there's really no substance to that piece. Drapery weights sewn into the corners will keep that from happening, and you won't even see the little lumps because of the wrap around from the back. Also, the shoulder seams are under a LOT of strain, so make sure you reinforce them well. The end product though is gorgeous and so much fun to wear.

The Party's Over

Owen crawled for the first time today. Like 15 minutes ago! The camera is lost, and so no pic yet, but I got it on video. He's worn out now, so thought I'd share. (new moms are so annoying, yes?)

Back From Colorado

Originally uploaded by nihonnofx

Well, we're finally back, after being "stuck" out there for an additional week! We not only survived, but actually ended up having a little fun too! Owen got to see Estes Park, and looked super cute in his shades. Now that we've got every loose end from Colorado tied up, we can get back to establishing our life in Delaware. YAY! (and knitting, of course!)
