Still Sewing!

This is the pattern I am using for Lindsay's dress. I am doing the short sleeved version, in royal blue with a sheer overlay that has a plaid pattern to it. It is going very well, and I should be sewing now, but I took the kids bowling and now am attempting to check email etc...Emily's dress looked remarkably like the short sleeved view, without the bow, but she ended up not liking the way the colors looked together, and the pattern runs a tad big so the bodice was big. She has traded dresses for the evening with her good friend, Elizabeth. She will wear the dress I made for Liz's birthday last year from this pattern:

This is an easy pattern, the hardest thing being a side zipper. It has the regency "look" while being a modern dress. I have made these for several of my daughters' friends and they all love them.

Well, back to sewing, oh and puppy selling. Someone is coming tonight to see them. I pray they all go to good homes soon, before they loose their cute puppiness!

I like the blue dress. That's what I have been looking for. But a zipper??? Never have done a zipper.

Take pictures when they are all dressed up!! Please?

They are both actually easy to sew. Paula, you could do a zipper - they are easy to do by hand!

The blue is so pretty, isn't it?

Thank you for praying about the 'delicate situation.' :o) I do remember that you're in a similar position and have to care for similar issues..I'm thankful you know what I was experiencing.

Bless you.


  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. We spent Saturday, doing things around the house, and then we swam. Kyle and Sarah left after that...
