The finished project...


My daughter finished her dress in time to wear it to church on Sunday and she was so proud. To tell you the truth, I was proud of her too. My first dress was no where near as nice as she did...I believe she is a natural. As I was taking this picture, she and I both wished that her grandmother (my Mom) was here to see her in it.

You see, a while back my Mom flew in for a visit and brought with her the fabric and the pattern we used for this dress. (Crazy I know, but my Mom loves to sew as much as we do)

We wish you were here with us grandmom...thanks for the new dress!

  1. WOW! I'm so impressed and proud of you, sweetheart! MY first garment didn't look this good either! I loved it that you wished for a "button collection" and I had such fun fulfillng that wish. I have a feeling that as the years pass, you will be sewing much more...and some day you will teach your children.

    I love you and miss you,
    Grandmom
