In June we all went to see my parents in Ukraine and I did a lot of feverish sewing before the trip. I made several Mulberry tunics (purchase pattern here) for my son. It's a great pattern for summer, casual and comfortable. (On sale till August 18th, midnight, with backtoscool code)

A while ago I was chosen through an IG contest to become a seamstress for Elvelyckan Design fabric. I was very happy to be chosen, I wanted to try their fabric for a long time. I love their design aesthetics. I was also super pumped that it's also so yummy and soft, really good quality.

I wanted to make the Dear Prudence dress when it was first released. I even printed and traced the pattern. It was supposed to be my youngest birthday dress. But then it just never happened. So I became determined to make it before summer started this year. I did, but didn't have a chance to blog about it until now.

A while ago I was at Joann's for something benign like thread, and of course I had to look at fabric. I didn't really need any fabric, but you know how that goes. I stumbled across this awesome geometric print in the clearance section. It was also 50% off. Clearly, the Universe wanted me to buy it. I think it's some sort of upholstery fabric, but it behaves similar to neoprene.

Ania had first grade literacy night at school. She brought a letter home a few days before the event that had all the information about the event, and also mentioned that since this is a celebration of their achievements, they need to dress up and look spiffy for the event. I asked Ania what she would like to wear. She led me to her closet, looked through all dresses, crinkled her nose and declared, "I have nothing to wear. You need to make me a new dress!" You've got some nerve, girlfriend was my first thought. But then I also thought, that she probably would not be asking for a long time and that I need to do it while she still wants to wear my makes. So she got a new dress.
