Alright, that’s an exaggeration, but this room hasn’t come withouta lot of challenges. You may recall that when we purchased our home, it appeared to have been used as a third family room or reading room. It felt undefined, became really hot in the summer and chilly in the winter. With a small eating area in the nearby kitchen, we decided to make it a bright and sunny breakfast room.
I mean, really? Could these be any cuter? Vanessa, from LBG Studio, sewed up these comfy jersey knit dresses for her daughter and is here today to show you how.
