Phoebe at the Wedding

The first major public outing for Phoebe and me was our friends' wedding.  I love getting ready for weddings.  I had actually purchased the wedding gift shortly after we received the invitation in March because I like to have the pick of the registry and because I was trying to complete every task I could before the baby was born.


However, I had a few minutes to play, and so I made the wedding card.  That's a page from a falling-apart copy of Daphne Du Maurier's Frenchman's Creek (which I did like and do own a better copy of); of course, I picked one of the lovey-dovey romantic pages to sew over.



Phoebe was given a pretty dress, but I wished for pretty bloomers to go under it, so I sewed up some lavender ones with a scrap left from Genevieve's pajamas. I used a pattern in my stash and modified it to Phoebe's hilarious measurements. Because I didn't think she'd be using these bloomers a lot and because I need any shortcut I can get right now, I did not finish the seam edges and I sewed the elastic directly on the fabric instead of making casings.


I don't have any actual photos from the wedding (way too overwhelmed with just keeping my wits about me for all the needs of a nursing mother and baby).  Here are gratuitous photos of Phoebe with my dad.  Our little sweetheart.

Love the card- the combination of bunting and the old book page works really well.

She's adorable and you amaze me with your thoughtful, beautiful cards and "quick" "simple" sewing projects.

What a beautiful baby.... there is nothing -- nothing! -- like that sweet soft peachy skin of a newborn.



I'm contenting myself with my 5YO's knobbly fingers. Just as sweet!
