X is for Xylem

Today I am joining in the fun over at No Big Dill’s series:

Sew All 26a

I LOVE Katy’s blog so very much. She is the ultra talented mom of 6 adorable children. If you haven’t checked her out, I don’t believe you hop on over!

Anyhow, I have the letter X!

X is for Xylem. Look it up. It’s a thing.


(Xylem is one of the two types of transport tissue in vascular plants) This dress looks like that, right?


The tulip sleeves also form an x (part of the top side is underneath).

irishbackm See that detail on the sash? Many little X’s!


PS- I know that this dress was originally her St. Patrick’s day dress, but I couldn’t resist making it fit the X theme. It is such an honor to be a part of the series! Thanks Katy!!

12 Thoughts on “X is for Xylem

  1. Xylem is totally a thing! My daughter did her 1st grade Science Fair project on xylem — carnations and colored water isn’t far off from tulle and flower shaped skirts — I can see it. Hurray pretty green dresses, hurray science!

  2. What a fun dress full of lovely details. Congratulations on a successful dress and for being featured on Sew All 26. And one of these days I’m going to check out your gluten free page. It’s on my to-do list.

    • Thanks Angela! I absolutely adore Katy’s blog, so I am completely appreciative she featured my X dress!
      Let me know what you think of my GF page! I just put whatever good things I find. Three of us here are GF, so it can be challenging.

  3. Such a smart x project! And so beautifully sewn!

  4. oh this is awesome! and three cheers for your big brain – i think i learned about xylem in school but that knowledge had long been shoved back into the “vague familiarity” part of my brain. beautiful dress though!

    • LOL Kristin. My brain so couldn’t remember this, either.
      I got my girls together with a dictionary, and we chose which word closely resembled the dress!
      They thought this one was perfect.

  5. Gorgeous!! That is a beautiful dress ;o) Oh and I just saw you are going to be on skirt fixation! How exciting ;o) Emily

  6. I love the details and X’s in the dress! It’s Xcellent!!!
