Very Little Sewing

Remember the dress I messed up, and so had to offer to my daughters?  Well, my newly graduated nurse wanted it, but with the proviso that it have cap sleeves, because she hates long sleeves (for whatever her reason).  So I drafted some cap sleeves, installed them, facings and a hem, and finally finished the princess seamed dress for her.

This color is not right.  It's really a medium shade of true pink.  The color is fabulous with her dark hair.  Maybe one of these days she'll even wear it!

And maybe this weekend I'll get some sewing done for myself.  Let's see if the weather inspires me!

Happy Weekending, everyone!

Hi Marjie, love the dress and I bet your daughter does too. Our daughter graduated as a Registered Nurse early this year too!! She has been lucky enough to secure a job in a large public hospital in the Emergency Dept. It's been a real eye opener for the country girl that she is! No worries, and love, Carol

No sewing here lately but lots of thinking. If I could get myself downstairs, 4 cuts and 6 seams would get me a new skirt. Will I do it is still up in the air LOL

Careful, you have three working daughters now and they'll all want new additions to their wardrobes.
