Cutting the Silk


















Most of the time I post about my knitting, but I have been sewing since I was a teenager.  My girls were all clothed in my creations when they were small and now I sew periodically for the granddaughters.  These dresses, however, are for 4 little flower girls.  All 3 granddaughters and the fiance's niece are in the wedding and I was asked to sew the dresses.

Long a fan of Children's Corner patterns, this is the same pattern used for my own girls 30 years ago. I love these kinds of stories and memories.  A simple, sleeveless dress of white dupioni silk with a navy monogrammed sash.  Simple...stunning.

***  a little Pride and Prejudice soundtrack while cutting doesn't hurt:)

  7. Such a lovely pattern - I can't wait to see the finished dresses. (I always have so much trouble getting started on important things like this...I'm so afraid of messing up!) xo
