Summer Blog Tour Endless Dress in Happy Home

Summer Blog Tour

Jocole Endless Dress 

with Art Gallery Happy Home Fabric

I know it seems really early to be thinking about the start of school, but is it really?  School starts in one short month and I need to be prepared.  The start of school brings back such memories of my childhood.  I remember being sleepless the night before the first day of school.  Who will my teacher be?  What if I can't find my locker?  What if I can't find my classes?  Lunch time in High School was always so worrisome for me.  Back then, we had to make phone calls (yes, pick up the phone and call someone!) to find out if we had any friends in our lunch period.

My own children don't seem to worry much about the start of school, they are just excited.  Excited for the new year, new friends, old friends, new teachers and especially those new school supplies.  Do you remember that smell?
I made the Endless Dress for the first day outfit for my youngest daughter.  I just love the words on the skirt fabric.  Memories, love, together, happiness, warmth, family......  Those words not only speak to having a Happy Home, but also to a successful school year.

I used Art Gallery fabric from the Happy Home Collection and I just love the colors and patterns, not to mention how soft they are.

I also made the Essential Pants in the shorts length to add a little coverage under the dress.  I use the Essential Pants pattern all the time.  They make perfect shorts and we can never have too many shorts.
Fabrics used:  Entryways Joyeux, To Live by Love, Lotus Beats Echo, Where the Heart is Pure
