Stars and stripes are serious

V and I had a very late night crafting session on Friday!  I'm not sure where I got the energy from because after my interview in the afternoon I felt like a wet noodle and was dragging myself around all day even after eating my favourite sandwich at Bows (the Cubano, so good).

I bought a simple dress pattern a couple of years ago and decided to make another dress with it. (I've used the pattern four times now).  The bodice never ever fits well and even though I've trimmed the pattern pieces down I still have to do some adjustments.  I think I'm going to look for a new pattern for my next dress.

V helped me position the straps Saturday morning but it was too cold out to wear the dress to C&C's BBQ so I made myself a a little scarf instead.  V called me Yankee Doodle.

Want to know what my Dad looks like?  Just imagine my face without long hair.  Total Dad!

The weather for the pool party on Monday was much warmer so I was able to wear my full on Yankee Doodle outfit to bike to the party.  Some of us even jumped in the pool!

It's a little hard to tell but the straps are red and white and there's a ribbon pin too.  This dress will make another appearance in about a month.
