Happy Monday. Is yours feeling as “manic” as mine today? I am trying to pull myself together from a fun, busy weekend. You know, catch up on dishes, laundry, vacuuming, meal planning, budget planning, activity planning…a stay at home mom’s usual.
Last Friday before all the weekend blur began, I put a fun order in the mail (“…and another one down, and another one down…“). You’ll all remember the Big Bow Dresses that I created for Easter last year? And then some more for a wedding a few months ago? Well, I was talking about them with my sister on this trip to Utah, and she asked if I could make the bow removable. I figured that it would work, but–seeing as how I have boys and no real reason to sew bunches of dresses…yet ;)–hadn’t tried it out.
Serendipitously, I received an email a couple weeks later with a custom order inquiry for, you guessed it, a Big Bow Dress with interchangeable bows.
I started with a pretty, simple sage bow dress, but made a couple little modifications to allow the bow to slide in an out from behind the pleats. Then I added snaps instead of stitches on the corners of the bow.
The result is pretty fun! The rainbow bow was a special request for the recipient’s rainbow-themed birthday party (cute, right?) I chose the bright floral as a fun pop against the sage that will be fun in any season. The first three are adorable, but that colorblock navy blue bow ended up being my absolute favorite! Can you just see that dress with a tiny toddler pair of these?
Now, off to fold another load.
You’re welcome for the eighties throwbacks to help you through your day;)
