once again, i can not sleep. so, i sew...
tonight i was able to get part of a shower gift made, a birthday present, and a top for gracie made.
this white dress is for a cousin getting ready to have her 4th child, the first girl in their bunch!
this funky dress is for miss izzy, who is a week younger than gracie. her mom & i are also a week apart. we have been friends since middle school & i'm happy to call her my cousin in law. sara's a bit funky, so i hope she likes it and doesn't just think it's plain ugly.
i used a different old pillowcase for my bias material around the armholes. i also left it with a frayed edge, it made it easier on me & i liked the look.
to avoid a strangulation hazard with the tie, i've started sewing the ribbon in place on the dress. i read to do that somewhere, not my idea.
both of these dresses are special to me because they were made out of my grandma's old pillowcases. i think she will be smiling down from heaven at her great granddaughters wearing them.
deb, this one's for miss chloe. a very belated 2nd birthday present! i'm so sorry we haven't seen you in forever! i'll get it out in the mail this week, promise!
i made gracie a reversible swing top. i can't wait to try it on her & see how it looks. this was made out of some old 70's goodwill dresses. i didn't use a pattern, not enough patience for that of course. but, i think it turned out pretty good for winging it.
hope everyone is having a great weekend. off to bed to try & sleep....
