Because FYI, I am.
I easily completed my pattern for tweens (I don't know why I italicized "easily"). Apparently, being three times as old as the target age range is helpful.
I actually really like this pattern and will definitely use it again. I did two separate fabrics for the top and bottom. Maybe because I thought that was more fun. Maybe because I'm cheap and only wanted to use fabric from my stash and I didn't have enough of either fabric. I guess you'll never know. And I did the fabric casing on the outside instead of the inside like the pattern called for. I was inspired by the dress I got for Bella from Blue Corduroy and you know I like to cram as much pattern as possible into one outfit. Definitely more of these in Bella's future and I might try to draft a pattern for myself since I like the style so much.
I'm having a girls night with my babies tonight because Crafty Papa has to be out of town for a family emergency-ish (on his 33rd birthday-poor Papa). Wanna know a secret? I'm very much not in need of a girls night with my babies. I have been with them every waking minute for way too many days in a row. So much fighting, whining, and screaming. We're working on putting pavers in the backyard so the girls can play there while I work inside and that project can't be completed soon enough. I wanted to sew after they go to bed tonight but I think I'll just sit alone in my livingroom and watch a movie without having to tune out Bella's high pitched singing and Matea's shrieking.
