My sewing (aka nesting) XP - pictures added (first post)!

Thought I'd share my nesting pictures. ROFL If the baby doesn't show tomorrow, then I think I will do a couple of layouts cause I really miss doing it!

This is what I started doing during Natalie's nap today. It's 11pm, I finally finished both girls' dresses (with a LOT of seams ripped and stuff done over). My first dresses ever, and I'm not in a hurry to do any more. Ha ha ha ha (Actually, I did sew my junior prom dress, but I had help from my friend's mom who was a seamstress.) But I think Jack knows he can come now - the dresses were on my list to finish before he arrived, and now they're done.

This is just Jordan's dress, I had to rip another seam on Natalie's so I don't want to post the picture of the dress before it was fixed. I'll post pictures of the girls wearing the dresses tomorrow, if I'm not off having the baby.

And for kicks, the belly at 39w1d (yesterday)

-------------

I took pictures of the girls in the dresses - Natalie's dress is a bit long, I made hers a size 3. But I think it's still okay that length, don't you?

the dress is absolutely LOVELY, Gwen!!! I'll bet the girls will be adorable in them, but I hope I have to wait to see for myself 'cause I hope Jack will very soon make his appearance.

TFS!

Wow lady! You definately have a full belly. He looks so low and ready to go. Are you ready?

The dress is really pretty. It makes me want to make one... Smile

I'm ready now ... LOL

Staring at a layout in progress, I'm thinking I'd be better off with a nap.

Thanks for all of the compliments, I really am happy with how they came out. Smile

Those dresses are soooo cute!! If I ever do decide to have another and we have a girl, I would love to pay you to make me one. The sash is so sweet! Awwww!

Jack, come on buddy, Mommy and your family and friends are all ready to meet you! Even though your mommy looks so cute pregnant, I'm sure she's ready to finally hold you in her arms.

Charys, you're so sweet!!!!! But really, the dresses are far from perfect, they just look good when you're not close up. Lol Hey, how's your sister doing? Is her neck all better now?

Thanks for asking. She is doing much better and can take her brace off most of the day now! She wears it for an hour or so at a time, then removes it for a couple hours.

adorable! I love little girl dresses. I would love to have the patience for making clothes, but I just don't. And your belly is the best.
