- 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!

We have one dress about done
The oldest's dress is complete except for handsewing lining some inside to the seam allowances and to the zipper. The zipper is in, thank you very much, without too much issue. Just clean-up. I still had everything in pieces on Monday afternoon, so most has been done over the past few days, with a 2 year old into EVERYTHING. I had one sick all last week with tonsillitis, so not much was done at all. The youngest's dress has a ways to go, it's similar, but slight differences, same fabrics. White pique on the bodice, white broadcloth sash and bodice lining, green cotton eyelet with broadcloth lining on the skirt and a front inset band of pique under eyelet. Bodice is hand embroidered and has a hand stitched ribbon bow appliqued onto the pique. This was a big job for me, so I am happy I am this far. Now back to the baby's dress... I am staying away from the computer so I can get done :).
