Shower Style File 06.26.10

So the baby shower was a blur of a day and I really didnt get to take a single style file picture of my dress that I made but I did get a few with Julie! 2 is better than 1 anyways, right? I ended up starting my dress last week when I went home to my parents. I knew what I wanted in my head and was trying to adjust a pattern I had to my ideas and to fit my pregnant body. There were a few hours one night between 12am and 2 am that I thought the dress was a lost cause but I stuck with it and I am actually really proud of how it came out. I was hoping for more of a fuller skirt but everything turned out about as good as I good have made it. I am by no means any kind of seamstress so it is pretty ghetto in places. I was so glad Julie and Chris got to come and hang out at the baby shower!!

You can see come more pictures of my dress in our mustache pictures in the post below as well.
