A new lens and a new dress

Being the wonderful husband that he is, A. brought me home a new camera lens today!  I have been wanting to try the Canon 50mm f/1.8 to see if that helped my issues with not getting enough light in my pictures.  I played around with it a bit today and I guess time will tell if it helps me get better photographs!

I finished sewing an apron knot dress today from a pattern that I purchased off of etsy.  You can find the pattern here.  It was a fun pattern to sew and M. tried it on for me tonight.  She was full of jumps and twirls, so you will see that in the pictures!  I have a bit of a controversial opinion of knot dresses, lol.  I know many people who adore them, and I have always stayed away from them because I felt a bit like the knots are ummm, inappropriately placed??  Please let me know where you stand on the issue!


  1. oh julie! i ♥ it. you seriously did a phenomenal job. if i weren't already harassing you to make me other stuff, i'd so be asking for this, too! and i love the matching hair thingie! adorable! you rock, lady! ♥♥♥

  2. Oh my goodness, she is darling, and I have never once considered the fact that the knots are inappropriately placed. Now, I'm going to think of that each time I see this dress! You did a great job. So sweet!


Comments make me happy!!
