A Quick Easter dress
You know, I'm all about last minute. I have been deliberating on if/should/can I just make my own dress pattern. Being a Gemini, I can not decide for the life of me.
Anyway, I had thoughts about making a simple shirred dress for Easter Sunday.
Then I just could not be bothered shirring all those lines. Then I finally decided to use two patterns and blend them into one. I've never done anything like this before but I threw caution to the wind and this is the (almost) final product (it's un-hemmed on the bottom). I'm thinking knee length but I was too excited to wait. It goes on over my head without the need for a zip.
I think it came out really well since I had no idea how it would turn out. The material is a lovely flowy rayon from Spotlight and I bought 2.2mtrs. I initally cut out my second piece wrong and I have some scraps left over. I might have to make a matching belt for this?? or will it look too matchy-matchy? It has to be belted.
In other news my sis came over a few days ago and showed me how to make almond milk. Since learning that soy milk is no good for you I've been wanting an alternative.
Almond milk is incredibly easy to make! Grab a bag of almonds. Soak them overnight in water. Drain the water and chuck them in a blender and begin blending with a cup of fresh water. Strain the liquid through a muslin (she found some in the first-aid box, LOL!) and voila! Almond milk. We made up about 400mls and she added some salt but I preferred it without salt. It's rather creamy too and not too nutty.
I compared it to store bought almond milk and our version is much creamier/whiter and of course, healthier! I suppose they must water their ones down.
I hope you will all have a fantastic Easter and a safe holiday.
May God bless your families and keep you well.
