Didn't this one turn out nice? I really like the background fabric I picked out for this one too if I do say so myself.
But BOM is not the only sewing I've been doing lately. I have ventured into garment sewing after more than 30 years! I know, don't faint just yet. When I was teenager I did sew a lot of my own clothes. Back then ( we're talking stone age here ) a lot of girls did sew at least some of their own clothes. It was the only way to get the latest styles in an affordable way. But... then I had three little boys and as we all know boys clothes are no fun to sew. T-shirts and jeans- blah!
Fast forward thirty plus years and along come granddaughters Claire and Paige my cupcakes! I have a reason to break out the dressmaker chalk. Get me some ribbon and lace, maybe some elastic. Wait! I don't remember how to do this at all waaaaaaaaaa!!! My friend Jeannie came over and talked me off the ledge and I sewed a reversible baby dress for my darling Claire. Ta Da!
Did I mention reversible? With a hat?
I know it's pretty simple but it's a start. Look out. Can princess dresses be far behind? They do sell sequin fabric don't they?
Until next time,
