Mama and Me: Voile Wonders!

Oh hi there.  It’s been a while, but here I am again with some Mama and me goodness!  I can’t even believe it’s the last day of July.


Today I bring you some dresses for Peaches and me, straight from some delicious Fabric Mart cotton voile.  Nothing says Summer comfort quite like voile, right?

The Last of Easter: Baby Jaimesyn

Happy Summer Solstice! Why not read about my last make for Easter (exactly two months ago) whilst enjoying the longest day of the year? In Southern Wisconsin we’re looking at a lovely 15 hours and 22 minutes of daylight: well earned in the dark of Winter.


Also, this is my 250th blog post! Took almost seven years. 😂

Last but not least, here’s Peaches’ dress! Another Baby Jaimesyn by Simple Life Pattern Company. You can see what Cheeks and I wore in these previous posts. I had designs to make daddy a tie, but I ran out of time. Sorry for the short end of the stick, Mr. 5. :(

The Leather Bonnie

Hey all!  Still haven’t shown you everything I’ve made for Easter (TWO MONTHS AGO, geez, lady), but here’s a little something else I whipped up for myself.

Easter Continued: The Kielo Dress

Howdy Howdy!  I meant to write this much sooner…but you know life, it happens.  :)  I’ve been busy sewing like a mofo for the Pattern Review Mini Wardrobe contest, and have also been documenting my 100 Day Project (which is crafting for at least 15 minutes a day) and Me Made May on Instagram.  WHEW.

Here is my Easter dress:  Named Kielo!


If you read my last post, you’re probably thinking:  but what about Peaches’s dress?  I thought you were going to share hers next?  Totally was!  But then realized I need to pop her in it again to take a few more pics, as I don’t have an unobstructed view of the front.  Oy.

Happy Super Belated Easter!

Happy Easter, almost a couple of weeks late!


I’ve been busy the last couple of weeks whipping up some Easter goodness for me and the kiddies.  I had designs to also make Mr. 5 at least a tie and hopefully a bonnet for Peaches, but time gave out on me, as you can see.  Sorry, hubby.  :(
