Are you starting to see a recurring theme around here??? There may be just a bit too much polka dotted”;ness”; going on. From the tween skirt tutorial last month to my Vintage style Polka Dot dress for the Oaks, I guess it’;s easy to tell that I’;ve been buying up quite a bit of polka dot fabric lately.

This year for Easter I still wanted to make my youngest daughter a dress but I knew that with her just turning 13 she wouldn’;t be interested in anything too “;little kid”; looking. ?A while back I was browsing the pattern books at Joann’;s and stumbled across this dress pattern. It’;s McCall’;s 6882- and fell in love with the shape. It’;s just a simple sheath dress with a gathered collar- simple and cute and perfect for my new teenager.

I lengthened the dress (as the pattern shows it ?hitting a few inches above the knee) and put in a longer invisible zipper. The longer zipper made it easier to get in and out of the dress –; the pattern called for a 7”; zipper but I put in a 20”; –; ?I’;m glad I made the switch. The dress is made from more of that fab ?Michael Miller Glitz Metallic Fabric

Easter this year was a bit different. My oldest was still in the middle of finals week for college and was not home with us for Easter Sunday. ?Most of the kids are getting to “;big”; for Easter egg huntsaccent pillow case baby canvas home and living, so we settled for a more low key family dinner at my in-laws house. It’;s crazy how much my son has grown this year- he’;s always been a head taller than his twin sister but this year the height difference in the two is really starting to show.

I think it won’;t be too much longer before he’;s taller than me! Which is just a crazy thought to me. ?He wasn’;t too interested in anything having to do with Easter clothes- we did convince him to borrow a tie from my husband for the occasion.

Growing up in St. Louis, my mom would always take my sister and I to Eckert’s to pick apples in the Fall. I have fond memories of that tradition and the past few years, have continued it with the girls. Yesterday was a perfect day for apple picking! We ventured to Weston’s Red Barn Farm, playing in the orchard, seeing a few animals and indulging on kettle corn.After a fun, but busy week, it was nice to take a step out of the city and enjoy some fresh air and picturesque views. My favorite view is whenever my family is in front of me. It gives me a moment to think about how blessed I am and truly appreciate them.
