I just finished this set for a customer. I love the vintage styling of the bodice. The pattern was from a Sew Beautiful magazine a few years ago. I thought the little cloche was a nice touch. The baby rick rack edging adds some vintage sweetness too :o) Here is a closeup: The weather here has been soooo gorgeous. I am finding it hard to stay indoors and sew! Thank you for peeking! Angela
We had such an amazing time. We were blessed with gorgeous weather. The tour group that we went with was GREAT! My only complaint was that I couldn't find any good fabric stores. The two fabric stores that I did find, only carried regular fabric that is sold here in America....Moda, Michael Miller, etc. So that was a little disappointing. I fell in love with a store called Cath Kidston though. She had some amazing fabrics....but it was home decor. Check them out: Here was another shot of the store. (((love))) I also fell in love with another store. It was in York. It was a true princess store. Check out the darling name of it...........Rosie Muggles! It had the most beautiful princess gowns! Love the pink too :o) Another type of store that we all loved.... the sweet shops! lol The scenery was so beautiful. The daffodils were in full bloom everywhere we went. Stratford on Avon was so pretty. Here is a shot of Anne Hathaway's cottage. So sweet! Well I am busy working on a few Easter sets. I will post pictures as I finish. Thanks for peeking! Angela
I sing, I sew, I smock. I spend way too much time on this computer! I am a stay at home Christian mom to 2. I have had the honor of having several designs featured in AS&E magazine and on the cover of Designer Smocking for Tots to Teens. I have also had a pattern featured in Sew Beautiful Magazine.
