Just thought I might share a few of my "recent" sewing projects with you!
I think it looks nice, what do you think?
I attempted to make a blouse, using my old tired bed sheet for the trial...well, it didn't work out right at all, and never got past the trial stage. Oh well, you gotta roll with the punches...
Tired bed sheet, see what I mean?
Red velvet, lined in red silk.
A Christmas gift for a friend...
(The napkins are on the left, gray print, with a lighthouse/sailboat border. The mats are backed in the same gray print.)
Mom found this dress at our favorite department store, the G&W (okay folks, the laugh's on me...the Goodwill Store! :) ). When we looked up the brand (we do that kind of weird thing sometimes) we learned that new, this dress probably ran somewhere in the 2-300 dollar range! I'm sure that's a drop in the bucket to a lot of folks, but that's a pretty good chunk of money to me!
I like it when rich people donate their perfectly useful clothes to the Goodwill!! :)
Anyway, that's all for now folks!
I hope you've enjoyed!
