So I have a confession to make. I am a habitual project starter, and not always the best project finisher. It’s something I’m working on, but when I get an idea, I drop all that I am doing and start working on this new idea. And then (sadly) I don’t always finish what I had dropped. Am I the only one? I think that might be a creative thing?!? Or maybe I’m just trying to convince myself that it’s something I shouldn’t be concerned about!
So the washi dress I showed you last week. It is so close to being done. I just have the tiniest bit of hand stitching left to finish it up. But before I could finish that hand stitching the prettiest Robert Kaufman fabric came in the mail, which led me to buy this new pattern, which led me to forget to finish my washi…ack! Almost there!
P.S. This new pattern, the Cabin dress, is by a new to me designer. I bought it because of the pockets. But I love little features in the PDF pattern that say “Next Row” or “Done” to help you with taping the pattern together. Genius idea!
Okay, raise your hands if your kids will only wear something that feels like t shirts! Is that just in my house? Truly, both of my kids would love to only wear t shirts and athletic wear, every. single. day!
So guess what I sew for them, pretty much anything that feels like a t shirt. Do you remember the Hudson Pants I made for myself a few months back? Well Kelli has released a kid sized version of these pants, and they are perfect! My girl LOVES her new mini hudsons and I think they are pretty darn cute on her!
These pants were a staple on our Hawaiian vacation last month. They were worn on the airplane, around the hotel, when it got chilly at night on top of the volcano (I know that sounds weird but it’s true, it’s cold on top of the volcano)!
Want to know the pattern details?

This past week Kelli had a few bloggers sew up the mini hudson pattern….find lots of mini hudson inspiration on her blog! I loved Erin’s versions (yep, one for her girl and one for her boy) that popped up on Our Family Four last Monday!
