Butterfly Dress

I called it the butterfly dress because they're embroidered in the fabric. My daughter chose this fabric for her daughter's thank you picture cards for the b'day party from several weeks ago. I think it's so adorable. It's from Simplicity 3854, the yellow version. I didn' t have the baby at my house when I was making the dress this past Saturday. It's kinda long. but her mom likes it!

Vogue Patterns for Fall

Here's what Vogue Patterns has to offer for Fall. So far, I like:

V2987 - I like the details on the back of this jacket.
V2988 - I love both options of this jacket.
V8436 - I think there is some red fabric in my stash for this already waiting.

V2983 - This is really sharp!
V8430-I need lots of options for jackets and I can see this made up in various fabrics for everyday wear either with slacks or a long skirt with boots.
V8420-This will be a great top for early fall. At first I was partial to the top with the long sleeves, but I think I like all the variations.

V2984-Again, another jacket option.

I've Been Very Busy...

But no sewing. I thought I would be able to stay home yesterday and sew all day. At least that was the plan. I had to go in to work at the church yesterday. I've been working a few days with longer hours because of our church's annual activities that began last night with our choir's concert, and then today begins our gospel revival for a week. I made lots of arrangements for out of town guests, and then for setting up things here. Whooosh! So it's nice to see everything take place without a hitch! I'll be putting in some sewing time in this next week! Sewing helps me relax. I'll be taking a few days off soon. Yay!

Here are a few of the guests who enjoyed the pool at the party. Most everyone else was inside the house because it was soooo hot!! Today is supposed to go as high as 96. But we had a nice time.

Alana enjoying some birthday cake. You should have seen her when it was all up her arm!!!

I only managed two outfits for the baby. McCalls 5304 & 5028.

I know. It's been a minute since I posted. But here are some pictures I promised of the Vogue 2749 that Gold mentioned on her blog. Hopefully you can see. Thanks to my oldest daughter who sent me the pictures for this post and the following.
