M6884 | And our Son's new baby

Hey guys I hope you had a wonderful weekend!!! My family and I sure did.
If you're friend on FB, you may know that my son is in the FFA. Earlier this year
he competed in a calf scramble at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. He was able to rustle down a baby calf to raise for scholarship funds. Well, on Sunday he got his calf. Yea! 
She's still a baby.

Having a son in the FFA is a lot of responsibility. This aint his first rodeo, tho! lol
We've had rabbits, pigs and now a Heifer. (Insert Green Acres song here)  He's been planning ahead for college very responsibly and I'm very proud of him!

I made this dress a few weeks ago and it was pretty pleasant to sew. I didn't have to 
alter it in anyway so that's always a good thing for me!  

The front is a mock wrap dress, and I made view A. I don't have any yellow in my closet, but this year I decided to try more golds and yellows. I've always had in my head that I was too dark for yellow and orange colors so I steered away from them. I'm still not to sold on it, but I'm trying.

I picked this fabric up from Michael Levine, I love their vast selection of knit fabrics. (Just hate I can't purchase 1/2 yards) I had no idea if I'd like this fabric or not til I received it, but I likes it!! 

It's a ity knit and feels great. I paired the dress with a pair of gold slings for the 
photo, but I'm still looking for something else that will go with this.

Speaking of yellows, I still haven't posted my very yellow Easter dress yet! You 
probably noticed it on my dress-form in the background of some of my other post. 
That's coming up soon! 
Stay cool everyone.
