The dress from last week was actually for a set of toddler twins. I cut both of the dresses out at the same time from different patterns without really paying attention to the specifics until I went to sew them. It turns out the pattern for this dress is about 5″ shorter than the one from last week. That’s a big difference when you’re giving two dresses to a set of twins.
I’m sort of obsessed with the 90’s trends that are making their way back into the fashion scene. I don’t think I’m quite ready to wear a choker or put a tank top over a shirt, but mid-length floral skirts are definitely my jam.
Skill level: Easy – This sewing project would be good for beginning sewers.
Time commitment estimate: It took about 2 hours total.
This might be my all-time favorite fabric. I love the colors, the pattern, the general whimsy of it. I bought it from Drygoods Designs in downtown Seattle, and probably should have gotten a few more yards.

We had what you might call an untraditional-traditional wedding. Meaning that we had a lot of the traditional things; bridesmaids, groomsmen, ring bearer, flower girl, a ceremony, etc. But we did things in an untraditional way. See some previous wedding posts here, here, here, here and here to get a visual of our laid back and very DIY wedding.
