Thanks for all the love on the Panty Tutorial.  I’m so happy to hear that many of you are interested in trying it!  Please, please, if you do give it a shot, I would love to hear how it turned out/see pictures!  

And now, the winner of the jersey and stretch lace is……Bethany!!!  Which is TOTALLY awesome because I work with Bethany’s husband (Cameron) and she is super great and an incredibly talented baker!  Although she needs to post on her blog more…come on, Bethany, get to it!

Bethany’s comment makes me laugh because Cam is known for going to extreme lengths for our work’s “Biggest Loser” contest.  He is excellent at losing weight in a very unhealthy way.  And he knows it’s unhealthy.  So don’t bother telling him so.

Anyways, congrats to Bethany!  Some fun jersey and stretch lace are coming your way!

On another note, I finished the shift dress inspired by this J Crew beauty.  It’s adorable!  I love it!  Here’s a really crappy camera phone sneak peek:

I made it from an IKEA duvet cover (cotton sateen) that I bought awhile back with the intention of making it into a futon cover.  I like this use much better, and I still have tons of fabric leftover.  I’ll post more pictures soon.

Finally, I have to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband.  You are the best, babe!  And I love that you were born on St. Patty’s Day…it is so fun!

  2. Yay- thanks again! I know, I really need to post more, that should have been my New Year’s resolution, since the other ones didn’t exactly pan out 😉

  3. Oh my gosh! I can’t wait to see the dress! Did you pre-wash the fabric to see how it wears? The color is gorgeous.

    • Hey Em! Yes, I prewashed the sheet and it did just fine! The fabric doesn’t wrinkle too much either, which is awesome.

  4. The dress is a great success! I assume that you used some sort of pattern?

    • Yup, it’s a modified version of SImplicity 2599 (the same pattern I posted about just a couple days ago). Love it!

  5. I can’t wait to see the whole dress… 😉

  6. it looks so pretty!!

  7. WAIT A MINUTE! I KNOW Bethany and Cam!! Have we already discussed this??? I totally grew up going to school/church with Bethany! Crazy small world!!!
