Settled in and back to sewing

Well moving has taken alot of of me, I still cant find anything now! I have such a small space and so much fabric, I have placed myself on a fabric diet! today I made this dress out of my stash. the denim top is from a skirt I cut up the belt and the straps are scraps from an old project and the skirt is from some cool vintage fabric that was given to me. It was only about 25 inches wide and wonderful quality, I believe it was from the 50's. After I was finished I realized that I have made the My Vintage Baby picnic dress! I havent been able to get action shots the kids and my husband has been busy making a volcano outside and so those will come later. but I love the way it turned out! I have just enough left to make a dress for her 18 inch doll.

I also got busy for the 4th and made Hope a cute halter top that says "I sparkle" and Jacob a t-shirt that says "my daddy my hero" the matching bows were really fun to make and I will be making more tonite to match the vintage dress!


  1. Love the halter top! For my cuppycake dress - I think why my shirred piece stretched out was because the skirt is so heavy. I had steamed it before I sewed the skirt on .... so that didn't work. Oh well, I'll know for next time.

  2. thanks Amy. It was fun to make, and I will be making more for her. I still think you cuppycake is adorable
