I have almost finished Kaitlyn's dress. Here is a picture. It still needs the bottom layer hemmed and a sash around the front waist that ties in a bow in the back - but it is starting to look like a dress. She tried it on and it is breathtaking on her. The overlay has small lavender flowers and green leaves. It is really delicate and pretty. Even Travis was pretty impressed and said it looked "store bought". For a novice seamstress this is quite an accomplishment. Now I have to get started on Kendra's.

I have been fighting off a migraine since yesterday evening. Even the light and sound are bothering me. I have taken as much ibuprofen as I can take without pickling my liver, and as soon as it wears off the pain in my head starts to rage again. I hate having a headache!


  1. Great job!!! It looks beautiful. You should be very proud!

  2. Very impressive. (The dress, not the headache)
    Hope you are feeling better today.

  3. I love the simplicity appearance-very victorian, down right elegant. Awesome achievement. Now, I am inspired to finish more sketching of a new project.

    Sorry about the migraine...instead, have you tried plain of fish oil? It's natural antiinflammatory. Praying for you.

  4. I was so with you on the headache thing. I had one that started Friday morning and did not let up even after taking some prescription meds. It finally went away some time during the night.

    The dress looks wonderful!!!

  5. It looks really nice, I wouldn't know you were a novice.
    I don't sew, can't sew, don't have the patience, I'm not good at it either.

    I hope your head is better, I have a headache too but I tink it's partly from the fumes here...


Awaiting your words......
