OK, more double than trouble, but everything that could go wrong did (in spades) with the second dress. A few dollar coins in the swear jar later, the Mr was heard to mutter under his breath ‘Hmm, couldn’t imagine anything more relaxing than crafting.’
Excitingly, this means a ‘crossing off’ on the To Do list. And baby Beatrix and Isabella, way way away in sunny England, have a summery get-up to soirée about in. As much as one month babies soirée. I’m also making a wild assumption that new Mums of two are lucky if they can squeeze a shower into their day, or even week. Am quietly confident there are no cats getting out of any bags here.
On an altogether different note, I am so thrilled it’s nearly a much-needed weekend that I could go and jump air somersaults on the trampoline. Consider the impact of three births and you’ll understand that for the grandiose statement it is.
nb. The dress/tunic is available as a free pattern here by Made by Petchy and it’s a super-simple fun one. My sewing machine took it upon itself to have a conniption during the making of the second – the sole reason for the swear-induced slog. And one day I’ll get out more, but there’s always guaranteed fabric success at Amitié.
