Patterns in the House

I just love it when JoAnn's has patterns on sale for $.99!!!  I got a bunch of new ones...and I can't wait to give them a try!  I even found one for a knot dress and ruffle pants!  Can we say ecstatic!!!

This is What Happens

when my computer dies because a hijacking virus fries the operating system!!!  I sew!

I often hear things like this from the princess: “Mommy, can you make one of those for me?”  OR “Mommy, I like that.  Is it for me?”  OR “Are you going to make my dress?”

And usually, the answer to those questions is NO!  I never seem to get around to making stuff for her.  But this time, I am pretty much caught up on orders and making things I want to make…so that translated into two dresses for the princess.

This was actually the first time I followed a commercial sewing pattern.  Since it actually turned out pretty good, I attempted a more difficult pattern for the second dress.

The yoke of the second dress called for an inner lining…first time doing that for sure!

The princess is pretty happy with two new dresses…and now I am going to finish a baby blanket next week and then work on some other cute things!
