Baby style

Amazingly enough, I have carved out a little bit of sewing time over the past week. I just love my new machine and ever since my patternmaking class, I have been dying to try to make some of the new designs that have been rattling around in my head. These new designs have one important characteristic. They accommodate breastfeeding. For any pregnant ladies out there who believe that once the belly is gone you are home free in terms of wardrobe, let me gently warn you that this is not true. Breastfeeding is an issue. But just think of it as another excuse for a few pretty new things. (Like maybe a dress from Live*Lovely? ; ) ) Anyway, I'm happy with this design because it has elastic down the two front bodice panels, so they don't get stretched out when you have to pull them aside several times a day. However my pattern does need a bit of tweaking before I put it up on the shop. ("tweaking"--doesn't that remind you of You've Got Mail? Love that movie!) I'll show you the final version in a day or so hopefully.

AND . . . here's cutie miss Ella sitting up tall on the table. She likes to wear her bib jauntily off to the side when she's being a daredevil.
