I have been mostly absent from this blog for the last two weeks for a good reason - I was enjoying a wonderful trip to Florida with extended family! I honestly haven't been that warm since last September :) We drove down from Michigan through a snow storm in Ohio, and then drove home through another snow storm in Ohio. I can't exactly say I was happy to come home to piles of snow so deep that I can't even see over them when I back out of my driveway! I miss the sun already!
We spent the whole two weeks on Disney property since my husband's entire family is absolutely nuts (in a good way!) about Disney World. I'm not as big of a fan, but the kids love it, and I do love to see them happy :)
I've had this polka dot fabric sitting around since the last time I made Disney dresses ... a little more than seven years ago! I used the Izzy Top pattern (of course!) since it's quick and easy. I made a size 3 and added 2" to the length to make it a tunic for Mae to wear with leggings. I also added 1/2" to the center back pattern piece to make a button placket.
I love taking pictures in Florida! It took me about 30 seconds to get all the pictures I needed compared to the usual 30 minutes :) And there is such an abundance of good lighting that far south. In Michigan I have to rely heavily on photo editing software in the winter months due to the lack of natural light. I always say I refuse to move to Florida since I don't like the hotter months, but the great pictures might convince me. Just don't tell my husband I said that or he will start packing!
