Well, as time before our move winds down, our school year is winding up! I’ve spent this week planning our next few weeks of school before we have to pack it up and move across the country a bit over a month from now. I’ve had a few people tell me I’m crazy for trying to school through a move, but Summer, after July, finds my kiddos a little lazy–too much TV is being watched, not enough chores are being done and we all are starting to itch for a little routine. So we’re jumping in.
I have started to wind down my Summer sewing also. I have two more pieces I’d like to sew up before packing up. I cut one out yesterday, maybe I’ll get it done by this weekend. I managed a breezy rayon dress last week. I wore it to church Sunday and really liked it:
This picture is not great. I need to teach Natalie to focus on the person, not on the brick wall 😉
It’s McCall’s 6678. I liked the modified shirt dress look with a drawstring waist. And I love a shirttail hem.
I’m pretty excited about our school year, as broken up as it’s going to be with two moves in the next 8 months. I’d love to come back in the next few days and show you which materials I’ll be using! This will be our best year yet 🙂
