Holy schmoley, I never would have thought that so many people would be sitting on the edge of their seats waiting to see how this dress came out. And by “so many people,” I mean THREE, one of which is my mother-in-law (shout out to YOU, Mima!!). And I doubt they were actually sitting on the edge of their seats. (I think this is what they call “artistic license.”)
Before I get down to business, let me just say that this has been a cah-rah-azy week. My mom and grandmother came in to visit, so instead of writing blog posts, I (slash Nathan) was…
- Cleaning the entire house with a toothbrush
- Finishing a quilt for Finn’s bed
- Almost completing the second bathroom remodel
- Reupholstering chairs
- Painting my front door
- Tiling and grouting the bathroom floor (in the first bathroom)
- Going grocery shopping
- Searching for the perfect christening outfit for me at the mall
- Planting mums (okay, Grandma and Finn did) in my front yard
- Fixing the front walkway
- Keeping abreast of recent developments associated with the implosion of Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s relationship
All that AND making this damned dress. So, yes. I have been busy, and now I have tons of fodder for new blog posts. But keep your shorts on; I have to tell you all about my dream where Captain America, Thor and I tear up our local shopping mall….
What do you mean you don’t give a shit about my dream??
Alright, enough already. You probably already skipped ahead to the pictures anyway. And you have already seen this dress. Since this is the third time I’ve made it. Here’s the “before:”
I know, it is plain… But she’s a baby, for pete’s sake. Not a birthday cake.
I’m not sure which will end up being a bigger pain in the ass, sewing on these little buttons or getting them all buttoned once it is on her.
You may wonder what we will do if it is cold… Worry not. We got her a little sweater at Target.
I also made a headband for her out of some of the lace. I’m sorry, but baby bonnets just aren’t my thing. And her hair is going to get all wet, and I’m not about to condemn her to a crappy hair day for her party. By the way… Have you ever tried to photograph the top of a baby’s head? Nearly impossible. Which is why they are a little blurry.
Oh my god, she is so cute it kills me.
So there you have it. I’m sure it was a the biggest letdown for you since the first Twilight movie came out. (I think I have now referenced Twilight twice in this post, and I think I may have to get a life.) Stay tuned to see how
crappy the last Twilight movie is it looks on her on her big day!
