Jane found this dress that Mom had made for me that never quite fit me right. I cut it down for Jane and she'd been eying the turquoise eyelet, so I used that for straps. Penny had picked out this silky fabric last fall. I used the Oliver + S popover pattern for the bodice and gathered it quite a bit so it would be full. Ended up adding more length to it. It's very full, but light and silky. They love maxi length dresses, that's for sure!
I'm a SAHM with two beautiful little girls, an awesome husband, two cats, and a house we're slowing making into our dream home.
I love to play with photos and save our memories, and I am fascinated with cutting pieces of fabric and creating something useful and beautiful. Handmade makes me happy.
