The Roller-Skate Romper: A Shameless Plug

My friend Katie is talented beyond belief. This girl can sew like the Dickens. And by that, I of course mean that her handiwork is comparable to amazing feats of literary genius, not that she gets paid by the thread.

Anyhow... I am so amazed by her sewing ability that I must brag a little bit.

Here is something she made for Mallory. It's called the "Roller-Skate Romper," and not only did she sew it, she also made the pattern herself. See... I warned you... she is amazing! (and probably SO mad at me right now, because she is very humble and not the type of person who likes attention drawn to her amazingness)

Anyway, back to the romper. Now granted, Mallory is probably the most darling baby girl that's ever lived, so of course anything she wears looks down-right precious. But PLEASE! The elasticized waist, the chic color-coordinating ribbon ties, the cute 70'ish vibe (hence the name). I'm in romper heaven!

Now onto her crowning glory as a seamstress (in my humble, non-seamstress opinion).

Katie made me this skirt, and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! It has a cottagy, Anthroplogie vibe, which is just my style. I wore it with a wide, red belt and white top, and I felt like a million buckaroonies!!!

I love my wonderful, talented friend!
