Monet is a handful, but she is as sweet as she looks.
I made this dress. It's lined. It has button holes. I learned a bunch of tricks I hadn't known before. It's called a bubble dress and I got the pattern from the Purl Bee website (you can click on their craft blog on my list to the left). I've had the pattern for over 2 years, but was putting if off because of intimidation. Monet is reaching the largest size on the pattern, so I knew I had to try it soon. It's as if the skill level was typed onto the pattern: Way beyond your level; be scared. Or something like that. I read each step several times because sewing language is one of it's own. Then, I placed one foot in front of the other, blindly. I felt so proud when it actually looked cute on Monet. Not to mention, comfortable. I'm thinking the next couple will be a breeze. That's how it usually works.
