What’s On My Table Wednesday?

So I’ve been a tad MIA.  I know…I know.

BUT we bought a house (HUGE STEP)!!!  Annnnd I have my very own sewing space!!!!  I could not be happier.  But more on that later……

Sooooooo before our move, I was asked to make a lace dress for a sweet friend’s daughter.  A 1st Communion Dress to be exact.  I have never made one before but her sweet mama guided me as to lengths and such.  She found something she liked and I tried to recreate something similar.

I used the Gabrielle-Fae pdf pattern.  I’ve made that one a few times now.  So I modified it a tad to get the overlay just right. It really turned out so sweet and Miss E. got to wear it a couple of times!  Hopefully my stitching will last so it can be an heirloom dress for her to hand down to her future generations.  I love that the scalloped lace hem was so perfect on the sleeves.  Sometimes it’s hard to tell online exactly what size is going to look right in comparison to the person wearing it.  But it lined up perfectly there 🙂

She is absolutely darling!  Thanks for letting me make this for your special day!

 

Until Next time,

It’s March ALREADY?

Where did the time go?  I blinked and missed it all?  No actually, I’ve been full on in the trenches of raising kiddos and dealing with that four-letter-word…SNOW.  It’s not a lot of fun around here when school is canceled and I have pretty things to sew for my paying customers.  There is a lot of “No, stop that!”…”Wait ’til your father gets home!”…”Nevermind, I’m calling him at work!” going on.  I’ve said it a million times lately…Bring on SUMMER!

Anyway…….

So remember that top secret photo shoot I was working on?  Well you can read all about the lovely Gabrielle-Fae here at Pattern Revolution.

See that fabulous car right there?  Ever since I won this fabric from the Fat Quarter Shop in a giveaway at Welcome to the Mouse House on fb, I’ve been thinking about that car.  I just didn’t know what pattern I was going to use…until the girl’s bundle came out!  So I put my name in for the SisBoom pattern and it all came together!  Our friends at PSR were kind enough to let us touch the cars.  You know how those car guys are and I can’t say I blame them.  A ton of work goes into restoring those “ladies” just like a ton of work goes into the items I sew. Labor of love <3!!!
