I finally finished this little gem! Love this fabric so much, and when I saw it, I thought it would look beautiful for this type of dress. Caitlin and I both think it would be the sweetest little summer birthday dress! I love the bow on the back and the pretty heart shaped shell buttons.
It is a one of a kind piece that was made from a 50's era design. Fabric is cotton lawn, so it is soft and perfect for those hot summer nights.
Next up to make are some more baby things, but before that, I will be making that skirt for myself that I mentioned in my last post.
This weekend, most likely will be spent puttering around the house and getting some chores done that need to get finished, like all the science experiments in the fridge for one, EWW.....and also dealing with shifting all the winter clothes to their temporary home, and purging some of it as well.
What are your plans???

Hope all the moms out there had as a fantastic day as I did. My family sure knows how to spoil me. We started out the day at our favorite restaurant, and if you are a long time reader you will recognize the photos. I love their eggs Benedict because they change them all the time with creative flavor combinations. This time they were grilled asparagus and prosciutto, and they were delectable. Caitlin had the cornmeal waffles with candied walnuts, and rosewater flavored butter. She let me have a bite, and they were so light and flavorful.
We then drove out to Marin to check out the Heath ceramic factory. I have been wanting to go out there for quite sometime, and thought it would be a great destination for the day, given how beautiful the surrounding area is. Love the simplicity of the pieces and how tactile they are. Since I have a butt load of dishes already, we only purchased some small breakfast bowls.
We then decided to drive to Cavallo Point. The views of the Golden Gate Bridge and the city are breathtaking from there don't you think?
Winding up the day, we drove home for gift opening and relaxation before then grabbing a bite to eat for dinner locally. The weather was beautiful and the day full.
Today I have one million household chores to do and the dress for the shop to complete, so I better get a move on.
How did you spend your weekend?

these. Time to put the hot kettle away and start thinking about summer oatmeal instead. I looked everywhere for the tiny ball canning jars with no luck, and I didn't want to order them, so I bought these at Crate and Barrel. I think they look kinda cool also.
Like I mentioned in my last post, this weekend we will be going off to Napa for David to participate in this event. I will be lounging and waiting for him at the finish line. Perhaps sitting at a fresh linen table setting with lavender near by :)
Have a splendid weekend everyone.
