So, I brought out the dress and used the black material as the skirt of the dress. Used the top half of the previous dress I made. Sewed them together. Made a sash. And also had a little help from fellow bloggers by using their tutorials (for the sleeves and the roses). And here is the finished product :
Awhile ago, I'd seen this post on Everyday Chaos by Bridget on how to make these tattered fabric roses. The tutorial is very easy to understand and they're so easy to make! I made these in about 10 minutes. And I plan on making another one to put in little girl A's hair.

Okay, maybe it's because they're hard and I don't like hard cookies . . .
soft, chewy cookies are what I like.
And if you're like me, you will absolutely, love these cookies!
These gingerbread cookies are different though! They're actually soft and chewy!!!
It's a recipe my sis-in-law was given a few years ago as a gift (you know . . . all the dry ingredients in a jar . . . layered). She made them, gave us a taste, and I was in love!

So, for the past few months I've been searching . . . and searching. Still haven't found the right price for my wingback chairs. It doesn't really matter what the fabric looks like because I plan on making slipcovers. And I found a great tutorial on how to make slipcovers for your amazing wingback chairs. It's here on Sew, Mama, Sew!

the plan: use the button side as the back of the dress (I despise putting zippers and buttons in)

On a sad note: last night as I was getting out all of my Christmas decor, I realized that I left a box (that has most of my decor) in Vegas when we were moving. It's at my in-laws. Oh sadness.

And I'm loving the look! I think it makes our living room so elegant. I'm still thinking about whether I should just leave it plain like this or maybe hang a few crystal thingies on it. What do you think? Leave it or dress it up?
