A Modern Day Blouse Gone Romantic!

Well, if you have seen many of the garments I’ve sewn, you may realize that I never actually use a “modern-day” pattern – they are all either Edwardian costumes or 1930-50s dresses.  So at the beginning of 2012 I decided I was going to use a real, all-out, modern pattern that I could actually wear today.  No frills or furbelows, just a down-to-earth, pretty knit top.  Ha ha!  It seems I am completely incapable of sewing anything plain at all!This blouse is about as romantic and feminine as any…See More

I Made this Bridal Gown Overnight!

What does one do when their brother and his fiancee decide to move up their wedding to just two days later?  In my case I started sewing my bridesmaid dress just as fast as I could!And then what does one do when the same couple find out that the wedding dress is not being brought from out of state - less than 20 hours before the wedding?  Race to the fabric store and pray like crazy! …See More
