New Dress



This is the dress I just finished sewing. It's a vogue pattern that I had to adjust slightly because I made it too small. No sense in making something you can't even button up! It's made out of a linen-like cotton and lined in bright pink . My mom gave me the vintage brown plastic and diamond (real diamonds!) buttons. Erin is in town and took the photos. Now I can go be a war secretary in 1944 Great Britain.

That last comment was from Sarah, although wouldn't it have meant more coming from Travis?!?

I'm impressed! So far my sewing skills only allow for clothing that is worn at night (i.e. sleepers and pajamas)and only for my kids so far. I'd love to be able to make something like that!
