I came across this lovely blog called Whole Grain Baby a couple of days ago and completely fell in love with the 'Mod Dress' that was featured. I then realised that I could actually buy the pattern from their etsy shop and make it myself so feeling rather brave after my recent pattern testing experience, I went to the website and within half an hour had the PDF pattern and instructions. I gave it a go today and I have to say it was much easier than I thought and only took a couple of hours. My version is not perfect but as a first attempt and only the second item of clothing I've ever made its not half bad!! What do you think??
I've actually set up my reading group now. I'm on a one woman mission to start using my brain again with the hope that soon I will actually be able to string an intelligent sentence together. My reading group is imaginatively called 'Louise's Reading Group'. I know its clever isn't it? I was trying to think of something intelligent and funny while in the library but Sam was screaming and the librarian was giving me filthy looks so all I could manage was 'Louise's Reading Group' - how pathetic is that?? I wanted to call it 'drunken mothers reading group but I wasn't brave enough as the librarians where I live are SO miserable. Joining the reading group was like having teeth pulled and took ages. The librarian made no attempt to hurry up despite my obvious frantic attempts to soothe my bored cross baby yet managed to look disapprovingly at me and him when he cried.
One last thing. I'm about to list my bibs on folksy and misi. I've made 2 sizes - small (birth to 9 months) and then toddler size (9 months to 2 years). I think the smaller ones should be slightly cheaper (less fabric) but my other half disagrees saying they take the same amount of time to make and its only marginally less fabric. Who do you think is right?????
