Dana, at the Craftyminx was a huge inspiration when I followed her make her birthday dress, she made Butterick B5605 using Horse Hair Braid in the hem to make the skirt look full. Her dress was so adorable and I wanted to create the same effect with my dress.

My husband decided to build a boat.
He is the most amazing man and I am so lucky to have married him. He researched and found everything online. After a few trips to lumber yards, hardware stores and specialty shops...he began living in the garage. Since he was working on the boat,it would be great to make a dress to match.
He finished the boat this week and we christened it "Andele Meja" (*Note: We should say Nina, but "we" spell it Meja)
