New Dress

I was inspired to sew a dress as a practice dress for my MOB outfit.
After a search, I found a pattern I liked which was a retro Butterick, from the year of my birth, 1952.

I found some great material with Chinese characters on it. I see the characters for 'person' and 'heart' and 'way' but I haven't deciphered them all yet.

And here is the final product; the first dress I have sewed in many a year!

TSHIRT HACKERS--REBORN!


NOT like these, though!------->

lona was thinking about creating her own "mother of the bride" dress for lynnis's wedding...

what could be more fun than helping her with design ideas, and perhaps each of us creating something special for the special occasion!

hallie and i are going to go through my extensive pattern collection this weekend. look around for ideas, watch at yardsales for special fabric or outfits to alter...
