My Favorite Dress.....
I can only say, Thank you MOM (aren't moms the best). She taught me to sew many years ago, so I had the solution to the problem. I would make another dress just like the one I have. After several days spent in my sewing room with pencils, pattern paper, pins, and yards of lining I had it almost completed. Now it was time to actually cut out the fabric that was waiting. (It had actually been waiting in my stash for several years for a dress that I decided I really didn't like.) When I had finished with the last bit of hand finishing and I tried on the dress, it was magical. I knew it right away, I had succeeded. This was perfect, the color the lines, the fit, the feel, oooohhh! I did a little dance and spin, this was just in time for Easter Sunday. I even had the perfect sweater waiting, made just for this dress.
Now that I have a pattern, I see many happy years ahead, and I am starting to envision ways that the pattern can be altered for new garments. Happy sewing!
