I Found It!

I found the perfect pattern for replicating Swirl wrap dresses.  It came yesterday and it's still factory folded and perfect, so I think I'm going to have to pick up some tracing paper.  It's too pretty to cut!


I am going to start on this tomorrow, in addition to working on my muslin for our One Pattern, Seven Bloggers project.  I have the perfect pink floral fabric I picked up at Salvation Army for $1!  It was my lucky day there, for real.  I found three huge pieces of floral cotton from the 60's, and when I got to the register it was half price day.  So I got about 12 yards of fabric for $3.

Lest you think I've abandoned my feedsack blouse, I am still working on it and it should be finished soon. I lost a little steam after sewing a strap on backwards, which I did not realize until I had trimmed the seams and hand-sewed the edges.  I've got the facing on the correct way now, I just need to finish up the strap and put in the zipper.  It's already hemmed!

Have a great weekend and a great Mother's Day!


  1. Oh la! Cute pattern and it reminds me of Colette's Crepe dress. I hope it turns out nicely.
    What a great fabric find! My Salvation Army never has anything good.

  2. Your pattern is lovely and it sounds like you scored big time with your fabric finds! I can't believe how many projects you are working on at once...very impressive!!!
