Yesterday for the intro to the Back to School Blog Tour, I said a little goodbye to Summer. If you missed it, go check it out here. Summer is my favorite time of year. Well Back to School is upon us. If you are like my family, school has already started this year, some of you may have a couple more weeks. Today I will feature the School is Cool sewing Pattern by Ellie and Mac.

Baby Girl has been begging for her turn at school. Last year she did a mini preschool once a week for two hours for just a few short months. Now she will going more often, but luckily not all day. I am one of those Moms that actually gets sad when my kids go back to school. I miss them during the day and I miss watching them grow, play and learn right beside me.
Baby Girl started off the school year excited, but today I had to leave her crying and sad. At least she has a dress on her I made her to help her make it through the couple hours she is there. This morning I got up super early and made her the School is Cool dress sewing pattern from Ellie and Mac. You may find it here.
In fact, this morning, I put the pattern pieces together, cut the fabric, sewed the dress together (I even hemmed it!), plus fed my kids breakfast, packed Little Dude lunch and snack, go them dressed, dropped each one off at separate schools, did a super intense workout class, wrote this blog post and now about to go pick Baby Girl up all before noon. I am going to be exhauseted!
Is the school is cool dress not adorable with its circle skirt and flutter sleeves?? There is a cap sleeve option and a long sleeve option as well. The directions were very straight forward and the dress was an easy sew. Great for beginners to knits.
Baby Girl, of course, loved that dress twirls!
Baby Girl and I both love dresses that twirl! This Belle Princess knit fabric was perfect for this dress too. I found it at Joann Fabric, you can find it here. I actually meant to make this dress before we went to Disney earlier this month, however it just did not happen. Baby Girl actually picked out this fabric. This School is Cool dress is great for back to school.
Lots of twirling happened in this dress. Please ignore her crazy hair today. Did I mention I had a busy morning this morning? The poor thing woke up this morning with hair flying everywhere. She got that from her Mom. Thanks to Kinky Curly Leave in Conditioner for being a quick fix during our busy morning.
In fact, I lost part of this blog post I had written earlier, as I was writing at the gym after my workout class, the power went out. Which meant the WiFi went out. It never came back up until I had to pick Baby Girl up for school. So, now she is getting to watch some Fancy Nancy while I finish this blog post.
I still cannot believe Baby Girl is old enough for school. She just walked up to school with a bunch of confidence in her cute School is Cool dress. She insisted she wanted to put on her back pack when we got inside the school, but not a moment before.
If you follow my blog, you are aware Baby Girl loves Paw Patrol, so, of course, she has her very own Paw Patrol Back Pack with Skye and Everest. You can find it here!
