Another reason I love Ebay is their favorite search feature. I have been on the hunt for this pattern for over a year. Ebay emails me if it is ever listed. Sadly, a really ugly early 1990's dress comes under the same number, so most of the emails disappoint. This one was the first one that was what I actually wanted. It is bigger than I would have hoped, but I bid myself silly to win it. I am going to have to alter it a bit, but look at how simple the one piece design looks. I am so not a pattern person, but I think this one is an exception. I am also going to bail on the bias tape, it is a hassle to put on... too much patience and precision required. I have plans to make it reversible, no inside seams to finish. Can't wait to try it out.
Here is little miss culinary adventures. We grabbed clam chowder bowls at the pier and sat down on the sand to eat. The girls had their own dinner from home, but Lucy was eyeing my chowder. I always let them try whatever they are interested in. It only took one sip of a latte to turn them away from begging for my Starbucks. I figured she wouldn't be into it, but one spoonful later I was left with an empty bread bowl and she took ownership of my soup. Mind you, this child could eat a burrito with lots of hot sauce every single meal. There however was no bribery on earth that would convince Halley to try it... she is the typical toddler who likes about 5 foods. Chowder bowls are going to have to remain date night dinners when Lulu is around.
