“I’ll buy you a dress, but not a real green dress that’s cruel…” I had this song in my head for all of last week, and here’s why! My Jenny Dress Pattern Review!
I LOVE green. Green is my color these days. The walls in my house are green. My peacoat is green, my windbreaker is green. I have a bunch of green shirts. Once, when I was organized, I had all my shirts lined up in color order. All the green all together, it was beautiful. But I did not have a green dress! Enter Jenny.
Hey all, I’m hosting my first ever giveaway in honor of finally doing something with my page and reaching 100 likes on Facebook! I definitely will not do this for every 100, but I wanted to kick things off a little. Here’s what you’ll win.
This is one of only three like it. I’m keeping one (it’s currently around my daughter’s neck though), and the third is up for sale on Etsy today. That’s it. That’s all of this fabric I have. A very limited amount was printed, and most went to other people making super adorable diapers and baby pants. I have the opportunity to get more in a Gryffindor colorway of burgandy with gold print, but I need to order it today to get any of it. If I do, it will also be VERY limited.
So please, celebrate with me, like my page if you don’t already, and enter to win! Do you have a favorite Harry Potter movie or book? Tell me in the comments!
Please see the Rafflecopter Terms and Conditions section for complete details on entry.

It’s Friday! I’m going to do a little recap, a “Friday Flashback” if you will, of what’s going on around here, mostly through Instagram posts. It’s um… going to cover from the last month, because that’s where I am in things. If you follow me on Instagram, you already know these things. Here we go!
Last post of the year! I’m saying goodbye to 2013, and with that I’m making a promise for 2014. Notice I said PROMISE? I do not make RESOLUTIONS. Mostly because I’m defiant by nature and don’t want to be told what to do. So… what’s my plan for 2014?
Yep, no store bought clothes in 2014. I’m all signed up and ready to go! For me. I didn’t commit the kids or husband, yet. Luckily, I really don’t buy that much for myself in any given year. I kinda, um, stocked up about a decade ago when working in retail. No, they’re not vintage now, they’re timeless! So my challenge will really be to make myself something once a month or so. But this also means no tee shirts, no new dance clothes. Luckily, I have some great patterns for tees, tanks, and yoga pants. I actually do have an awesome undies pattern too, although those purchases are permitted in the fast.
I’m really looking forward to this as a way to push myself this year. I don’t get nearly as much sewing done as I’d like, and I really want to see where this year will take me. I’ll be posting my adventures along the way!
What new ways are you planning on challenging yourself in 2014? Do you make resolutions?
