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~


~You can be a Flea Market Fancy Freak !!~


We all love the Flea Market Fancy fabric line, but so sadly it is out of print and very hard to find.

My friend Penny from Sewtakeahike has started a wonderful campaign to bring it back!!

You can go here and join in the cause to bring this great line back! Maybe just maybe we can do it!

Finger’s crossed and I promise to buy a lot if it does! You know what they say ~ a promise is a promise !!~
