Little Folks Voile Top


Shirt made from Anna Maria Little Folks Voile

Solid fabric is color River and print is Baby Bouquet in Dusk

Pattern is: Simplicity 2931 but sleeves are Butterick 5217

(seen before here which I've never worn by the way)


Notice my bracelet above?


I'm wearing a tank top underneath not because the fabric is shear but because when I bend over it gapes so bad at the neck I can see my feet.

That's how Jon fell in love with me you know. At community college I would sit on the lawn in this shirt I made that showed too much when I bent over (I didn't know this until he told me) He took one look down my shirt and was instantly in love:) Oh and he said I ALWAYS had bruises all over my legs and it looked like I did heroin (his words, not mine). I sound classy huh? Now you know how to steal Jon from me: look like you do drugs and let him see down your shirt:)



Thanks Corinnea for taking the pictures:)


This fabric is like "butta" and easy to work with.
I didn't think it was slippery or frayed in excess.


Emily and Ava coming home from the babysitters (hi Mary!). She always does their hair different when she watches them. It's fun to see what hairstyle they'll be sporting when I pick them up.

Oh hi! I like the shirt and can't wait to find one of my own, bash up my legs, grow some boobs, let him have a look, and steal Jon away from you! It's totally your fault because YOU told me how to do it.

BTW, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the mushroom backpacks even still. I like Ava's more because of the colors and if I were there I would steal it...even from the baby...yep, cause that's how I role.
