Maxi Dress and Baby Birds!

     I first heard about the release of the Emmaline Dress pattern from Violette Field Threads when it was announced on their Facebook page.  I fell in love instantly and had to try it.  I ordered the fabric (same as in the pattern picture I saw, it was too pretty and I just had to have one like that for Scarlett) immediately and knocked it out this weekend.  The pattern was really easy to read and I can't wait to get started on some of the others that I picked up in the pattern bundle.

     I just had to get her dressed up and get some "action shots".  :)
Hamming it up.

Back of the dress.  (Checking out the chickens hiding in the zucchini.)

     Also, do you remember those eggs I posted a picture of in an earlier post?  They hatched!  We've got baby birds!  Three of the four eggs hatched.  They're so cute.


     With the baby birds hatching, the weather heating up (sometimes TOO hot), and the garden starting to produce baby zucchini... I can't help but get excited about the upcoming summer!


  1. LOVE that dress! and I'm envious it can be worn already. I had to wear my winter coat out yesterday (and it was considered above seasonal)

  2. Gorgeous dress! She is just too sweet!

  3. It looks awesome!! Scarlett is too dang cute and i can't believe how big your cickens have gotten...holy chickens!

  4. Thanks, guys!

    Jen, whew... winter coats went into hibernation this year. It seems like Alabama didn't even have a winter. (I know, I know... probably NOT something you want to hear. Lol!)

    Thanks, Kim! She was hamming it up big time. Took a few shots to get one that was "normal". Some of the others were hysterical!

    Ashley, those chickens grew INCREDIBLY fast. I can't believe how big they've gotten. They're really tame now and follow us around the yard. I've got one that hopped up on my lap the other day while I was building trellises for the zucchini and cucumber. Hopped right up and just about said, "Hi". :)

  5. Hey, Sarah. Just started following your blog from BBC crafty sewing mamas board. I love that dress. Chevron rocks.

    1. I am all about the chevron. I think it makes everything look better. Lol! Welcome! :)

  6. That dress is ADORABLE!! Nice work!
