Fashion Friday




Add Image My favorite 21 year old granddaughter, Hannah, and I have been working on a sundress for her to wear this summer and what fun to have her around her again. We used to spend lots and lots of time together when she was little but she went and grew up (wonderfully well, too) so it's been a long while since we've had much one on one time. A trip to Joann's produced the pattern and in about three sessions we produced a cute sundress for a cute little gal.



Here Hannah models her new frock for you on Fashion Friday. Please note the RUFFLE around the hemline. It didn't get cut as long as it should have so guess who suggested the ruffle. Actually, I think it looks very cute.



She did almost all of the sewing - had never really done much before except a little bit of piecing when she was much smaller. She used to ask if we could make a "kilt". None of the girls really have taken to sewing but maybe they will one day. I love them anyway!!!! Being their grandma has been a joy and still is. (Click to enlarge)

Ahem, I have taken to sewing! I hemmed a pair of black pants all by myself. I have actually been thinking I want to try to make something, so perhaps I will try something similar this very weekend!! Looks super cute on her.

Love,

Great sundress, just throw on some super cute flip flops and take grandma out for some evening ice cream. Maybe Dairy Queen, Girls. I am glad you spent the time together.

Beautiful work and the color - she is a natural quilter in the making!

Doesn't Hannah look great! I love the fabric, too. How helpful it is to learn at the side of a master seamstress!

I like your new blog look, too. It's fun to mix it up sometimes.
