WIWS- Palm Sunday edition

Happy Palm Sunday everyone! We are getting quite a bit of snow today, which is very unusual this time of year for the part of the country we're in.

I am woefully lacking in the red department in my wardrobe so this is a dress I actually whipped up this week with some fabric I had lying around. Must. Dress. Liturgically. Appropriate.

(I was the little kid who used to match her socks to the appropriate liturgical color when I was an altar server. Liturgical year nerdiness is the way to roll, my friend!)



It'll make a good Good Friday dress, too. Cardigans cover a multitude of sewing sins, thankfully, because there are still some modifications I need to make to the top before I'll be satisfied with it.

22 weeks this Tuesday! Hard to believe I have a little over a month to go before my third trimester. Baby Sister is pleasantly active (which is to say she's active enough to keep a smile on my face, but not so much it's uncomfortable). The nausea has been a close companion for me this week, but that little girl's kicks and squirms constantly remind me...she is soooo worth every minute of hyperemesis! I'm looking forward to meeting this new little daughter of mine. Still have a ways to go, so for now I'll enjoy her little wiggly self inside me. Please keep praying that she has a healthy heart when we go back for our ultrasound...and that she actually lets the ultrasound specialist get some pictures of it this time! 

Oh, Holy Week...how I love thee! Aren't you all excited for this week???

  2. Wait. Are you kidding me? You just "whipped up" a dress? In a week?
    It takes me a month to sew a pillow case.
    That dress is gorgeous.

    1. Haha...I took pictures of it in a favorable light ;-) Seriously, there is still a lot I want to work on with it, but as long as I can wear a sweater...totally acceptable! I actually was inspired to pattern it after an old-fashioned dress my daughter has with a sash. So hard to figure out maternity wear!

    1. Haha..thanks so much! Maybe makes up a bit for the copious amounts of time I allow my daughter to be entertained by Netflix, right?
