Thanks for stopping by Sew & Tell Saturday!
I hope everyone has had a great week!
I have been super busy! My son is graduating from high school tomorrow and we have a big party planned for all the kids in his class after the ceremony. He and his friends spent all morning stringing up lights outside and setting up tables and creating a party atmosphere. We are so proud of him as he has been a very good kid. He will be attending UC Berkeley next year. I think I will miss him terribly when he leaves.
I have also been working on costuming a play which takes place in 1916 in a small town in Tennessee. I have about 16 costumes to put together and most of them are for circus performers. I have been spending hours pinning old photos on my Pinterest boards and figuring out how to adapt the designs from some historic Simplicity patterns I bought. I will have to draft a few pieces from scratch as there aren’t many patterns available from the 1910’s. The designs are starting to come together and I can’t wait to get to work. I love a big challenge like this!
Here are two featured projects from the week before last :
Blessed to be a blessing made this cute and perect for summer maxi dress. I have a maxi in the works too. Why is it people love to wear floor length dresses when it gets hot out? I don’t know, but I love to too!
Can I just suggest you stop by Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty mom if you never have before? Her many sewing tutorials are so well written and you can make a lot of the dresses for adults too becaiuse they are based on measurements. She is one talented and generous crafter. As someone who writes tutorial myself, I can appreciate how much work goes into a well written sewing tutorial.
