Because I have a very full on dead line coming up.
Because I would rather sew than have a clean house. I wish it weren't so.
Because I've never sewn her a size 5 dress before.
Because I was embarrassed when my studio builder asked me how much fabric I actually have.
Because there are 4820 things ahead of 'make a dress' on my to-do list.
Because I know she'll love it.
Because it is a mix of old and new fabrics that have sat around in my stash forever.
Because our 11 o'clock appointment didn't show up and I had some extra time in my day.
Because every five year old girl should have a colourful twirly dress, don't you think?
Because after a weekend spent looking after four 12 year-olds, it was such a treat to do something just for me.
Because listening to The Moth podcasts and cutting and sewing bits of fabric together is one of the best ways I know to spend some time.
Because some times when I wonder how I will fill up my time next year, I think I might sew and I had to be certain I still like to.
Because it's spring time and there is hardly any sewing time.
How about you?

Do you think I could pull off a mixy-matchy dress too?
I'm off to pick broad beans for dinner.
