Thanks you,
Mary

I then took this in and made a pattern for a tank, crop top. I then found some fabric and cut out and sewed this top w/ruffles and lace. I wore it for almost a year. After then it was smaller than I was. I have been making my own patterns and clothes since then. What makes me most proud is the fact I was only 10yrs old at the time. I wish I stil had that top. I would frame it in a shadow box for my sewing room.

I found all the poppy fabric on line and used the invitation, printed on fabric as the label. I would love to add the pictures but don't think that I can do that on this site.

I read everything about couture and enjoyed the whole process. It was a labor of love and when it looks beautiful on your daughter, it seems so worthwhile.

LynnD writes: I'm proud of two recent ones, for very different reasons. One is the group of 16 aprons I made (lightweight denim) for a volunteer program we're involved in. We cook and serve meals to the needy at a church, and the aprons are looking very sad. It is great to see us all in nice, clean, tidy aprons, all with pockets.

The second one is a Sandra Betzina pattern I recently made--it is her jean jacket type short jacket with lots of topstitching. Many parts, quite a bit of work. I made it out of tan organic cotton twill with matching topstitching so that I could wear it with jeans. Most of the last 30 years I have rushed through projects so that I would have them to wear quickly, unlike when I was a teen and experimenting and taking the time needed to do it right and learn along the way. That's what I did with this jacket. Fits great, looks great, and I love it. Perfect!

After I designed my dress, made my pattern and was finished sewing it, one of your vintage dresses on the back cover looked so much like my dress that I had to call my mother in astonishment!
