Ramblings and Sewing

My son is home from college!! He got a summer job as a lifeguard at one of the high schools. So I took the kids there to swim and got this cute picture of him and his little sis sitting together.That year away in college have taught him the value of money. He don't spend like he use to!LOL


Now to sewing!

It was windy when my son took this picture!





Pattern: Simplicity 3503 view E. Misses Knit dress in two lenghts with bodice variations.

Sizes: 6-14 I made a size 8.

Fabric: Some knit fabric from Walmart.It was a 1.50$ a yard.

Conclusion: After seeing Ms. Erica B. made her dress like this I had to have it. So when Joann's had their 1.99 Simplicity sale I got it. I just love this dress.I had no problems making it. Like Ms. Erica I used the same fabric for the lining.It also calls for fusible interfacing in the neck band. The only problem I have with this dress is I have no shoes that match it. DARN now I have to go shoe shopping!LOL


Well thats it for me! Happy crafting!!SmileyCentral.com

Great job and isn't it wonderful when they start understanding what we've been telling them about money for years.

Oh my gosh! What a terrific dress and it looks terrific on you. It really makes me want to make another one, except summer is thisclose to being over. Sure hope the maxi dresses are still in for next summer.
