a beautiful mother's day brunch


If you follow me on instagram, you may know that I spent the weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, one of my very favorite places. My husband and I met up with our parents for Mother's Day, and we had a great weekend with nice weather and lots of delicious food and drink! But y'all are here for the sewing, right? My mom, who you met here and who taught me to sew, has been sewing up a storm--she's way cooler than me and makes a lot of indie patterns--seen here are is just one of her several coco dresses! (Coco is totally one of her "basics" and she excitedly told me to link it up for the Social Sew!) She is participating in Me Made May over on her instagram, but over the weekend I took some proper pictures to share here. I love you, mom! Thanks for teaching me everything I know.


ps: i took these pictures (even the salad!) with this method from last week...

  1. Very nice. I like the dresses.

  2. Thank you for the wonderful weekend! We really enjoyed getting together and relaxing. The sunshine was welcome too.
    Virginia is beautiful and worth the trip if you haven't been there yet.

  3. I love that your mom sews! Lovely dresses. My mom also sews, but she is into making home dec stuff, not clothing.

  4. Your mom is so cute! And Charlottesville is beautiful! My sister used to live in Harrisonburg so I've spent a bit of time in the area. It's especially glorious in the fall!
