There is something so precious about a bishop dress. I LOVE them. My goal is to learn how to smock and pleat..insert shudder… Oh Lord. Maybe one day, but in the meantime I will make bishop dress’. I used The Scientific Scientist Bebop Bishop Pattern. I love the small print of this Densyse Schmidt Croquet fabric. My buttonholer gave me fits and I had to scrap the buttons. I made buttonholes The Old Fashioned Baby way. Oh me, nerve wracking. They are not perfect, but they will do I suppose. The sweater is The Vine Lace Cardi. I love, love, love this sweater. All we need are a pair of mary- janes and a pair of tights and a baby. ~ Swoon~
Oh dear, has it been almost a year? I don’t know what to say really. I can’t quite explain why I fell off the blog wagon.
Life is busy and full. There are not enough hours in the day to get it all done.
I am still doing the things that I love to do. I will always make and create even if I do not document it. It’s just in my blood and
I am very restless when I don’t have a project going. That brings me to my announcement….
Please come visit my new blog/shop!!
So, it’s kind of empty right now however, I am working really hard to create some beautiful classic pieces with some great fabric choices. It’s going to be great. You can see some earlier items I made in my flickr. I may add some other things along the way, bags, quilts, knitted items… we’ll see.
My kids are older and I can’t sew for them like I want, so I figure this is the next best thing. I LOVE sewing for kids and I have a ton of ideas and items I want to make. We’ll see how it all flows.
I hope you will visit and if you have ideas I am all ears.
