Keeping It All Organized

Maybe it's just me, but I seem to start one challenge, leave off for various reasons, (time being only one) start a second, (completed or not) and now, I have projects all over creation.  More than…Continue

"This is really great, Tempest.  Yes, sewing every week is far, far (FAR!) more expensive than I thought!  And it's why I stopped early in the year.  I realized that if I was sewing and spending cash on the all the…"

1949 Collared 'Linen' Dress-front

"This is really pretty and so perfect!  I love the pattern and the pale, WWII-era color-scheme (even though the pattern itself is post-war.)  Excellent choices!  It looks great on you."

Hi Joann,

Yes I just got it this week, but didn't know who to thank!  Thanks so much - I feel so special - it is such a fabulous pattern - what a treasure.  I love the skirt of the dress and have been wanting to make a high waisted skirt just like that for a while.

And I loved the little card with the old photo, I got to explain about hand coloured photos to my 9 year old little techie son (future nerd) Alex!

That is an amazing corset you have made.  I had thought of incorporating underwires and maybe boning to my On Trend project coming up, but I can't handle the thought of patternmaking it.

I am really loving forcing myself to sew each week to keep up with the challenges and find myself trying to be compepetitive for the first time in my life!!

Hope things are good with you

And thank you again!
