I have been away from blogging for a while and I am excited to return. I love to read blogs and really learn a lot from them. I enjoy a variety of subjects including home decorating, travel and lifestyle blogs. Over the past few months I travelled to Ashland, Oregon, to a Design Outside The Lines sewing workshop, a trip to Ireland, and lots of sewing.
Here is a recap of a few of my sewing projects.
In keeping with the idea of recycling and reusing, I have been making Christening Gowns from Wedding Dresses. I recently made one from the Mom’s dress and Grand moms for a little ‘surprise’ that arrived after the family had three sons. The Grand Mom had passed away so it was an extra special dress. I used the softer fabric from her dress on the inside and the stiffer satin on the outside.
I have made a lot of dresses for these twin girls as they have been in a few family weddings and love to dress up.
This bride wanted a red ‘reception dress’ for her wedding. She brought me a picture- the pink dress- and I made the red version making a few changes. It’s actually a top and a skirt.
These dresses are also ‘reception dresses. It’s hard to believe that these girls have to decide on two dresses!
I am working on an Ireland post, a Charles James Post, and a DOL post.
