Dressmaking 101

I've been making some good progress this week during my morning applique...

At this rate I should have this final border for my FlowerGarden quilt completed by the end of the month!

Back in the day, I was someone who could manage sewing clothing....I haven't really done much of it for years (since becoming an avid quilter, maybe?).

Lately, I've noticed a lot of comments on something called the Washi Dress. I was tempted to order the pattern online when I found out that Lana at my local quilt shop, Quilt Junction, had ordered the patterns in for the shop.

I went out and bought it and some fabric on the sale table. I don't want to commit to full-price fabric 'til I know if the dress will look good on me and if I can manage to do a good job of it!

I wish I could have this sewn by our party this weekend for my new grandson, but I think it would be pushing it with so much going on this week. I think the most difficult part will be not sewing with a 1/4" seam allowance!!

I am linking up with Sew Fresh Quilts for Let's Bee Social.

Have a great day....which, by the way, sounds like the beginning of the next heat wave!


  1. More beautiful applique, just lovely!

  2. Love your flower garden quilt!

  3. How is the dressmaking going? Every once in a while I think about doing the same thing but so far I'm too chicken to try!
