Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness




As you can see I made some changes to the pattern. LOL I left off the little elastic in the front and added lace trim all the way down instead. I think the style and the lace give it a definite 60’s feel. What do you think??

I have found that McCall’s I should cut a little big and Butterick’s I should cut a little small! Do you find that to be true, too???

Also, I cut mine in the length of the blue dress and STILL had to cut a couple of inches off. You can still it is still quite long! LOL


I didn’t finish the sleeves or the hem. I like the look when knit rolls a little. 😉 Plus my sewing machine was giving me FITS, AGAIN! GRRR!!! At first I tried reasoning with it… That didn’t work… So then I tried begging… Nope, that didn’t work either. Then I tried down right threatening it. That seemed to work a tad. 😉


Now I need to figure out my next project… I’m thinking green gingham capris for me…. 😉 I have some green knit that matches it perfectly so I think I’ll make a simple top to go with it. No pattern… I’ll just be winging it again!


What are YOU making???


Here are a couple of pics of me messing around with the classic Facebook bathroom shots. LOL


I need to clean that mirror! LOL



That’s my “I don’t know what the heck I’m doing” look. LOL
