A Linen Dress

Am I on a roll or what?

A second completed dress within a week!

I am planning to wear this dress to the open house in Atlanta

It is made from a 60/40 linen-cotton blend with machine embroidered yellow and white flowers

I used a fabric sample from an upscale interior decorator for the belt

And the buckle is true blue vintage

Something I picked it up many years ago

Before those type of things were so hip

Don't you think the two work well together?

I did purchase the trim around the neckline

It brings in a modern softness

Have I told you how much I love having a room dedicated to sewing

And creating?

I also love having my sewing machine and my serger side by side

And an ironing board right behind me (a nice vintage wooden freestanding one)

And the tunes of 89.1 blaring

You should see me

Going from one machine to the other

And then turning around to press the creation

At the end of the day

All I have to do is shut the door to the disorder

I thought you were wearing the yellow dress? They both look great.

(Don't forget to take pics!)

Have a fantastic time--both dresses look great. I love that you had a buckle saved.
I also love pictures--just like the caboose.
Have a fun and safe trip!
It is your b-day on Bastille Day. We will celebrate when you get back.

I am so jealous! I wish that I could sew as well as you can!

You are so CREATIVE!!! When do you leave for Atlanta? It was so sweet of Matt and Adeline to stop in and see Dad and Mom while in Salt Lake City! They loved every single moment! I'm guessing you will be on the road on your birthday? Sending love to you and David and the family!
