This is rather a mix of things (from news to blog happenings to sewing) but that is okay.
Two posts ago I asked you to please pray for my nanny. Thank you for your prayers. She died Sunday morning. Nanny loved to sing and I know she is singing her praises with the angels!
I know I am quite behind on this but…over at Feelin’ Feminine they are having a Jane Austen tour (exciting is it not)! They are hosting all kinds of Austen related things, so meander on over and check it out! I did not think I would get to join in until…
I finished the dress I have been working on for a few months! This is my first dress/outfit I have ever made. And I did it without a pattern! I am quite excited about it! Here are a few pictures of it…
I hope to do a better photo shoot with it, maybe outside. The inspiration was a tent dress received from my former employer. I discovered that by tying a ribbon just under my bust it created the look of a Regency style dress! I do not know what the fabric used is because it was something I found lying around the house. The shirt was another Goodwill find (my favourite store).
What made the dress even more special was that I was able to wear it to our pastor’s last Sunday as our pastor. He served our church for twenty-eight years; his leadership will be greatly missed.
Well, what do you think? I would like to hear your input good or bad!
I hope you all have a lovely day!
