"I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

I am in a mood to sew some dresses for me. This might sound silly to some, but I love old clothing, civil war, regency (Jane Austen) era, Victorian. Anything old, its wonderful. In a world where people are taking off clothing, I am drawn to wonderful, old, feminine clothing. Call me crazy, but floor length skirts and dresses give me thrills!

The last two days, as I can, I have been org. Andrew's/the sewing/the guest room. I found a couple dresses I cut out years ago that, after I make my self tidy the living room, I am going to work on them!

As for the girls: I love jumpers, full under-dresses with lace and pinafores!

I found a couple really cute patterns for Andrew, 1900 pants, vest and jackets. I cant wait to sew for my men. I also have a pattern like it for Aaron. :)

For the next while, while its wet and rainy. I am sewing!


  1. Wonderful!! Don't forget PICTURES!! (I know you wouldn't) love, annie

  2. I love some of the older styles. Especially on the little girls. Eva made a super cute dress for Abbie that I love. It's longer and it has the ribbon that criss-cross ribbon in the back. Totally cute! I've never worn anything in the older styles, but I would be up for it if I could make find something. I don't sew well enough to make myself dresses. :)

  3. Annie, I will post pictures, even though the camera hates me, and the I have the same feeling for it. All because I love you! :-)

    Diana, I am sure you would do well if you tried! You are so talented!
