Latest Sewing project!

Click to view larger

I've been bitten by the sewing bug this summer, my latest project being a new, bright green best dress for Sundays and other nice occaisions.

I made it using the Simplicity pattern 5189, the pink one on the picture up there. It's a fairly simple and fun pattern to make. The only altering i did was to add a ribbon as the sash, thus giving it a sort of a waistband.


  1. I love it, Rose! The green you chose is so pretty, and those flutter-y sleeves are a dream! The pattern cover looks simple and even boring, but you made up such a gorgeous dress with it. I wish had a little more time to sew...

  2. Oh, goodness! That's such a sweet dress, Rose! I wish I could sew like that! :D

  3. Rose, How pretty this dress is! Wow! I love it. and the sleeves are to die for. What a beautiful color you have. I love green. Great work and good luck with all your sewing projects!

  4. That is so pretty, Rose! I just love it! Great work!

    And isn't that sewing bug wonderful! To steal a line from Fiddler on the Roof: "May God smite me with it...and may I never recover!" ;)


  5. Aw that is SUCH a cute dress! Now I want to learn how to sew! :)
