I’m back with an amazing DIY Camryn Dress by StyleSewMe, but first.. It’s been a little quiet on the SewSinCity front! So many things have been going on.. Y’all know that mom life will get you every time!
My baby boy turned two last week and I wanted to cry. He’s so big. No Really.. He’s in the 97th percentile for height, and 95th for weight. He’s a beast. lol.
Story Time! Some random lady in the store was like, “how old is he, about 4?” I go, “Nope. He’ll be 2 in a few weeks.” She follows up with, “oh wow, dad must be tall.” I should’ve left it alone, but I hate when people just know everything… So I said, “Actually he isn’t.” THEN SHE PROCEEDED
TO BASICALLY ASK ME TO CURSE HER OUT, “Wow, haha. I bet he questions you a lot..” I wanted to curse her out SO BAD. LIKE SO SO BAD. But i’m working on my anger. LOL. So I simply turned to her and said, “My son looks just like his father, and we all know EXACTLY where he came from. No questions asked.” I had to walk away. My blood was past boiling.
Anyway, before I get worked up again, with the little turning two.. This means that the blog is also turning two soon! OMG! I started blogging while I was at home on maternity leave as something to pass the time. Here we are two years later.. HOLLLAAAAA!!
Today I am sharing a “Shress.” Shirt meets Dress. I love this thing. I have been sitting on this beautiful lace fabric for so long. I got a crap ton of it in LA at my fave spot that sells fabric by the pound!! I didn’t know what I was going to do with it, and then my friend Eryn of StyleSewMe released her Camryn Dress pattern. I knew I wanted to make a version of that beautiful bodice, but in a style that suited me.
I love dresses, but I have been flocking to denim lately. I envisioned that bodice with a high low flowy skirt that would really play off the lace. I got exactly what I wanted!! I couldn’t be more happy with the outcome. The construction is not difficult, and Eryn even has a great video tutorial for beginners and all the visual learners out there. Win-Win!
Now that I’ve gotten my last summer sewing fix, it’s Time to think about Fall! What are your sewing plans? Is this DIY Camryn Dress by StyleSewMe in your queue?
