Birthday party, birthday dress!
So I'm excited to share pics of Jenni's work and the good times had by all, although most of what I have on my camera is from the "photo booth" so you'll see lots of the balloons! Which now fill my basement bonus room. Hm.
And, I also made myself a new dress for the party, which I didn't have time to take pics of and share here before I wore it, so... consider this a project post and a How to Wear DIY post. And a party round-up!
Quick story on the dress--I wanted a bright color and found this pretty cornflower blue rayon on the clearance shelves, half off last weekend. I used Butterick B5319 for the bodice but extended the crossover pieces and made the whole thing longer, so instead of a midriff panel I just gave it a small waistband. And I added some length and gathers in the armhole over the bust. I was thinking about some of J.Crew's bright, pretty party dresses. Of course most of the photos I have of it are from the photo booth, test shots!! So they're kinda blurry and I am showing off some of my weirdest accidental faces.
Okay, now that that's done with... party pics!!
The smallest guest at the party was Jenni's one year old. He lightens the mood and is a great party guest! Thanks, Jenni and family!
Aren't I lucky to have a good friend who is also a party stylist/designer??! And a blogger! THANK YOU so much to Jenni, and my husband, and her husband, and all my friends who came!! And hoorah for birthdays.
Now back to a normal week. That's pretty cool, too! Hoping to balance life stuff and new house stuff and find some quiet time this week. Have a good one!
