Summertime stripes:



I’m so sorry that it’s been forever since my last post. I’ve been working on a big project and I can’t wait to show it to you guys! It’s almost done. I did manage to sew something else this week though. I made a little summer play dress, (always fun for a romp through a field.) I’m a t-shirt and jeans type of gal myself, but I have all these dresses I made. So my summer’s resolution is to wear more dresses…now if only I carry that through….yeah we’ll see how that goes…What are your summer resolutions? I made my own pattern and I used knit fabric for the dress and lace for the collar and trimmings. I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out. Happy Sunday. : )

  2. I love that dress! I really wish I had your clothes makeing skills. All the stuff you make is so lovely. I'm not even sure how to make a dress with a pattern much less without. I'm worried I'd mess up. =/
    Hmm, my summer resolutions. . . I guess be more true to my style. I really enjoy wearing all vintagey stuff, but sometimes I get self conscious and dress differently according to where I'm going and who I'm going to be around.

  5. I found your blog via the link from Molly's Sewing and Garage Sales Adventures, and after looking around I wanted to compliment you. You're good at making clothes, you take very nice photos, and you have lovely skin. Keep up the good work. And wear sunhats.:-)
