You’ve had that pattern HOW long?




Yes, I know what you are going to say.  That’s crazy!  And, you are right…it is.  So a while back I posted this picture of Jenna wearing the Emmaline dress that I have FINALLY sewn up for her.


This is one of the very first patterns collected in my Violette Field Threads collection.  I just can’t believe I waited until she was almost out of the size range!  It is a few yards of fabric to sew up and I’m sure that has been what has kept me away for so long.  I’m not much on working with more than 1 yard at a time.  I have sewn the older kids very few things, so it’s not like I can’t work with more than a yard.  It just leaves so much room for error!  I’m always nervous that I’m going to waste good fabric.  I have friends and they have horror stories of wasting their best fabrics….sad face.

So, anyway…..Jenna loves this dress. She wears it often and says it’s super comfy. I’ve only had the dang pattern since 2013….SERIOUSLY!?!

I guess I can’t be too hard on myself.  I did sew it for the Fashion Friday series waaay back when Becca and I were collaborating.  Here’s the only other one that I’ve sewn.

Nectarine Emmaline

It’s got to make me wonder how many others have I hoarded????  Guess I’ll start tallying and sewing!!!

Until next time,
