Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness


It’s slow going on the sewing for the past couple of days. With everyone being sick I just haven’t had much time. I thought The Hubby and c2 were getting better but this evening they are both feeling worse. I think c2 is on his way to an ear infection. WAH!!!!!

Here’s how far I have gotten with the McCall’s M4769.

I had to run out and get some more thread and look for a new light bulb for my sewing machine. I went to 3 places and none of them had the type of bulb I need. Looks like I will have to order it. BUT look what I found for $2.30/yd at Hancock’s!!!

C1 fell in love with it!! I got 4 yds (all they had) and I think I will use the same pattern I used for her cherry dress AND make her this-

McCall’s M6064 – views B and D – the first girl.

Here is the pattern I used for the cherry dress (with a few alterations ;)) I used the view with the girl in blue.

A girl can never have too many vintage style dresses! πŸ™‚

  1. Such LOVELY patterns and fabrics . . . and a lovely model, too! πŸ™‚

  2. Great dresses, what fun to make little girl dresses. Praying for your loved ones to get better. Ear aches are no fun my son was prone to getting them often.

    • Thank you!!!!!

      Yes, I LOVE to make dresses for her. I wish I had learned to sew long ago so I could have made some for my oldest daughter, too. Maybe one day…. She’s 15 so she only wants to wear jeans and t-shirts! LOL

    You’re really talented! I wish I can sew. I cannot even replace a loose button properly.

  4. Wow! Your daughter’s red and white dress is enchantingly adorable! She is gorgeous! Cute and clever merge of fabric, notions, and style.

    • Thank you SO much!!! I had that dress in my head when I first got my sewing machine. I knew exactly the way I wanted it to be. Thankfully it turned out well. I was so scared the whole time that I would mess it up! LOL
