It's been a long while!


I'm not much of a computer person.  I tend to forget about the computer completely, to tell you the truth.  Whoopsie.

I am very excited to be working on a few...*cough*... I mean a lot of projects for the spring/summer.  I hit the jackpot at a local antique store and found a ton of patterns from the 1930's for next to nothing.  Needless to say, I am going to be sewing up a storm!  I've already begun work on a dress from 1937 with a cute crossover top and a flowy, many-gored skirt.  I'm using a beautiful crinkle rayon.  
                                                                             Dress!

                                                                            Rayon!

I made a muslin and cut out the pieces today.  Hopefully start sewing over the weekend.  

I'll do my best to remember to post again soon...:p
