Bebe Dress

Finished my first "solo" sewing project this week.  The Bebe dress from Serendepity Studios.  I had a little bit of trouble with the invisible zipper, it took me a couple of tries to get the second half of the zipper in, but I walked away from it overnight and in the morning I figured it out.  

I used some fabulous vintage lace around the bottom.  I have been saving it for just the right project, and thank goodness I had enough of it with about 6 inches to spare!  The dress fits well, but I think I need to tweek the bodice just a bit to get the closer fit.  All in all I will make another!  I have some Liberty Tana lawn fabric just waiting to be made into this dress.

Catching Up

I have been neglecting this blog for hmmm...a little bit over a year now.  I have been a busy girl.  Just wanted to share the *biggest* highlight of last year with you.  I completed my first triathlon.  It was awesome and I am already registered for this year!
I trained with 2 awesome coaches and the MOST fabulous group of women EVER!  It was the first tri for most of us and I would not have been able to do it without all of them!  

This was the smile on my face as soon as I finished the swim.  I could not stop giggling!  I knew I was in shape, and had complete faith that I was trained and going to finish!
Coach Anna had champagne at the finish line for us!  

My niece Sam had this awesome sign as I approached the finish line!
Oh and one more (well actually 2 more) awesome things..The new babies.  Olive
