A Wedding Weekend

3 Sep

We went to a wedding yesterday and I think it might be one of the last weddings of our good college friends.  There are a few others but the days of going to a wedding every weekend of the summer are over.

I have made it eight months without buying the girls any clothes.  Whew.  This has been a fun and rewarding challenge for myself but it has also been very inconvenient at times.  Aleah did not have a nice enough dress that fit her for the wedding so I had to make her one.

No one has been sleeping that well around our house for the past week because Aleah got a really bad cough from some neighbor kids.  The kind where you wake up at night because you are coughing.  And if she is waking up then either Jared or I are waking up as well.  Fortunately Sophi has not gotten the cough and I didn’t have to make Sophi’s dress.

Needless to say sewing a dress was not on the top of my priority list but I scrambled a bit and this is what I came up with.

I used an old bridesmaid dress, took in the sides and added adjustable straps as well as trimmed the bottom.

Happy Labor Day Weekend!
