I'm in the garden dress.....

While we were away this past week our blog was featured on
Rhonda's Creative Life!  She writes a cool blog with
beautiful sewing projects & oh yeah she is a Pilot!
Our first feature that made our day...thanks Rhonda!
She also featured Janlynn from Sew More
who is an accomplished seamstress that we aspire to &
know her cool projects from my mom's blog!

We made this garden dress of this lavender soft stripe
with muted
flowers fabric.
 My mom had it in her fabric stash & could not
decide how to sew it up as it was quite sheer.

Not hard for us as it came......
pre shirred in the middle! lol

So we made it a double layer & that took
care of the sheerness.

My mom did a little hand sewing for the front bodice.

Sew you later!

Powder Puff Skirt

We finally finished this skirt we were working on for my mom!
This powder puff fabric is leftovers from silk curtains that 
my mom had that were pin tucked.  

The hem was done in hot pink because she likes contrast!

I think this skirt would look cute in a boutique!

 I found this this cool fabric 
that has butterfly's embroidered on it.

Happy Stitching!

A sewing space

This is where I sew with my little Singer Featherweight kitchen table.  All of us 4 girls can easily fit around this
 pub style table to spend some time to sew together.
I do have a "sewing room" that houses my work horses like the
 Singer Precision, Singer Pro Finish 
over locker & my for fun Janome 350e Memory Craft
Embroidery Machine.

But since finding this little black beauty, I want
her to front & my sitting room.
I am looking for a little table to put by
the front grande window & that is where I plan
to the natural light!

Sew you later!
