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!

A little finishing work and that's about it

I am trying to steal a minute here and there to finish some outfits for the baby before she starts preschool. One dress/panty set is from a 1960-ish Butterick. I decided to finish the armholes with bias strips. I am convinced to always make kids clothes flat. It was hell to sew in those strips on the machine. And that was the attaching seam. I plan on folding under and finishing by hand, but on a little size, no way I am doing that again. A lesson learned...

I also have more of the tie shoulder dresses to finish, one in pink camo and one in pink swirl. Plus some items for school for the oldest and oldest boy...
