It starts! Project Sewn Your Signature Style

Well here it is. Blog entry number 1.  I'm posting this outfit as a sew along for  Project Sewn Season 1 Week 4Your Signature Style.  My signature style is comfortable and kid friendly.  I really like knits and the comfort they offer!  I also appreciate easy laundering as I have two small children who love to give the best hugs at the messiest times.  I try to embrace these moments and try hard not to cringe at the spots left on my clothing.  So when I saw this fabric, soft, machine washable and super good at hiding stains with the shades of gray, I had to make it into something for me!  I made this dress using Simplicity Pattern 2219.
 
 
 

This is my first attempt at having pictures taken of myself so bear with me.  

 

I love that I can bend easily to check the garden or my kids.  There is plenty of length to cover my knees so there is no over exposure.  I love that in a dress!  





Well, I hope you enjoyed my first blog post!  Thanks for reading!  And if you have time and want to vote for your favorite signature style, head on over to Project sewn.
