A New Dress!

My first finish for 2023. 
Another vintage style dress like the one I made last year. 
I loved this fabric when I saw it and 
thought it would be perfect for a dress.  
This is the pattern I used. 
Once again I added pockets 
and lengthened this one a couple of inches.

Friday Night Sew-In

Last night I joined the girls for the first FNSI of 2023. 
I hand stitched the zip in on my new vintage style dress. 
I'm off to my sewing room now to finish putting it together. 
Only the side seams and hem to go!

Thank you to Wendy from Sugarlane Designs for 
hosting us again this year and thank you to Dawn 
from Kitty Rose Cottage who is again sponsoring FNSI.

Christmas Jewels

I forgot to share these Christmas Jewels I made as gifts. 
I decided not to use Christmas fabric so they could 
be out all year round. Eight of them of made in Tilda 
and the other two in some fabric I had in my stash. 
The red one of the right is the original one I made 
from the Tilda Mystery Christmas Box 
by Kitty Rose Cottage back in March.
