About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Baby dress day


I managed to get a baby dress sewn together and am hand finishing it. It is green seersucker plaid from a remnant with white bias tape and rick rack tucked under the tape on the neck and arms. I used Simplicity 3508, vintage layette. I cut it as a small, 6 mos, and it is huge, so it will be used later this summer.


Mine is more like the yellow without the bows. I may make a bonnet trimmed similar to the dress, but may not have enough for panties, which is ok since she has white rhumba pants.
