Flightsuit Party

Tomorrow is the big day! So today I tried on Nathan's flightsuit, pulled out my sewing machine, and got to work...


Before

You are not a military wife if you do not have a stash of ugle green thread, a must for sewing on rank and mending beat up uniforms.


Everything to make a dress

Here is what the kids were up to while I was trying to get some work done.


Kid Sandwich

And - dum, dum, du-daaaa:


After

What do ya think? I am hoping to get some pictures of the other ladies tomorrow night. Everyone has been working hard - I think this was the most fun I have had sewing in a long time!

Wendy, your dress is so cute! You did a great job, I love the black netting! Will Nathan keep it in his closet as a back up flight suit now?
love you!

I know you posted this a long time ago but Amanda McLaws heard me talking about my own flight suit dress and said I should check out your dress on your blog. So since we are living in your old Dakota Ridge house now, I was hoping that dress was somewhere hidden here. It is too cute!! I love it!
