Saturday Afternoon No Brainer

This UFO has been sitting by the sewing machine for 2 weeks waiting for ribbon ties.

Fun project to do because it's ONE SEAM! All of the other design work is done for you. These pre-smocked/gathered panels were on sale at Hancocks a few weeks ago, so Lu picked out this juicy summer stripe for a sundress/top.

We scored the perfect matching ribbon for ties.

I finished this project & planned another while rewatching the BSG miniseries (Season 1), i.e. the good old days.

We miss you too, Captain Apollo.


  1. How cute! ya know I have totally overlooked that fabric! It will make some really cute summer dresses/tops for my girls!

  2. Can I admit I actually laughed so hard I almost peed a little ?? Damn, that is too funny!! I cannot wait to show this to my husband!

    Also, I adore that little dress - I sure wish my Mom made me stuff like that when I was young. Lucky Lu!

  3. That dress is super cute. One of these days I'll have to try smocking. You've inspired me.


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
