The Final Sewing Project Fitting. And More Teasers about the Big News.

OK, first.
If, by some miracle,
you have ANY inkling of what the “Big News” is PLEASE,
DO NOT mention it in the comment box!
But I will tempt you by letting you know a HUGE giveaway will coincide with the Big Announcement… spread the word girls!
My days of rolling out of bed and crawling to the sewing machine are over.
And I’ve decided I have named a new mental disorder…
Look at that! Hubbie’s shirt from off the floor and everything! I can’t believe I am posting this photo!
Just keepin’ it real.
And I’ve decided I have named a new mental disorder…
It’s the creative curse I suppose. It’s the reason just sewing an “Easy Sew” dress could never be good enough. Noooooooooooooo… I had to a add rosettes trim, a giant sash and use slippery, shreddy, ornery taffeta!
But, boy oh boy… sometimes O.T.T.D. pays off!
Two dresses, two girls, two birthdays (one Christmas Eve and one in January!)
Not to mention my grand- daughters someday getting to wear them!






Now I am off to make the Tinkerbell (or “Tinker” as she is known in this house)
Macarons… with the requested Pixie Dust of course.
Then I shall set the table for the party, finish wrapping
and collapse into a heap.
‘Tis the season to be Momma.

  2. This post brings back so many happy memories of sewing matching dresses for my girls. Taffeta was always a first choice and of course, velvet. Mine are stored away hoping they will be worn again as well. Happy Christmas to you and your lovely family!

  4. You are one of my heros and the mom I hope I would be had I had daughters instead of 4 sons. You amaze me with all that you accomplish and do with your life. Christmas blessings to you and your family.

  5. I’m here from LaurieAnna’s Vintage Home…I just read your feature there. I’m in total awe of you…I’m a SAHM to 2 – who are 1 and 2 – and wow, just wow. My house is in total functional mode right now…I’ve been putting off doing anything pretty until the babies are older. You’ve inspired me to try to add a little style to the insanity around here. Your babies (I call all kids “babies”) are gorgeous…and the dresses you’ve made are beautiful (I think your girls agree, from looking at the smiles!).
    Thank you for sharing the beautiful pictures of your family and home and garden – I’m following so I can continue to be inspired by your amazingness!! (How on earth, on top of everything else you do, do you have your home in show-ready condition with 4 kids during the Holidays? WOW again!)

  6. Oh, I LOVE your blog! I remember reading about you in ‘Where Women Cook’ but I just re-found you thru ‘Vintage Paperie’! What JOY!

    I read the Bracelet Exchange post, and love that idea. That would be so much fun for a girly Valentine party!

    I’m a new blogger, and I’m having so much fun exploring other blogs, and making new friends (I sound like a gooey cheerleader-eek)…The Christmas dresses are beautiful. Have a Merry Christmas.

  7. I can’t believe you actually made those! They are stunning! What a gift to make your vision into reality. Would love some sewing lessons from you. When I was at the fabric store doing some holiday shopping, I looked at the taffeta immediately thought of you!

    Those dresses are such a special gift to your girls. My mom used to make me beautiful clothes. I wish I had them to give to my daughter. I do have a beautiful coat that she made for herself before I was born. There are photos of her wearing it while she was holding me as a baby. I feel close to her whenever I wear it.

  8. ADORE the dresses! Dying to know what pattern you used- seems like all the easy sew patterns are to simple with no room for details. Any suggestions for patterns?
