Kelly's "Happy in the Navy" Sundress

     Here's my contribution for this week's challenge, done in a hue of blue.  This dress was made early/mid summer of 2011 and was the first project after too long of a remission.  I had just found a place for my old singer and, of course, I needed to see how it worked.

     I hope you can see by the pictures that I am very happy with this sundress.  The navy and white flowered rayon is super soft and flowing and I feel great wearing it!…

Plaid challenge: something old and something new


     This creation was made for the week of the plaid challenge.  It was finished September 3, 2012.  It is a vintage-inspired, yet modern pattern, made out of  just a few yards of cotton. 


My dad picked this fabric out for me to buy years ago and, at that time, I hated the print-absolutely did not know what to do…
