Sewing For My Girl
I've still been working on learning how to sew and I found a wonderful book called Carefree Clothes For Girls by Uonca http://www.amazon.com/Carefree-Clothes-Girls-Patterns-Playdate/dp/1590307178 . The patterns are for clothing that has a vintage flair to it with unhemmed edges and simple shapes. I sewed a little dress from the book out of some fabric that I'd gotten from a resale shop for under $4.00 (shown in last photo), but then decided to try to make the same dress using fabric from a man's shirt. I keep seeing these shirts into dresses and I have to say that I loved having a lot of the hard work already done for me! The author of the book uses all types of scraps and pieces for accents to the clothing and in my dresses I added bits of antique doilies.
