- 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!

McCalls 8718 - Toddler Dress
I made View A, for the littlest one, in a size 1, in a sandwashed twill that was sitting in the UFO pile. I trimmed it in a leopard cotton print and lace from my mother's stash, about as old as me and the pattern, 1967. Went together nicely, but the collar curls up a bit. She rocked the look with her tights, bloomers and new shoes!
