In Progress

I went to the thrift store today. The thrift stores just aren't on my path when I am not taking Jessie to school and her activities, so I don't go a lot during the summer.

This Goodwill is near a client's office that I was visiting today, so I made a quick stop. Is all I found was this milk glass vase. 49 cents. I do have several of these already, but I love these to hold all kinds of items, pens, pencils, scissors, hairbrushes, they are so useful. I don't know what I will use this one for, but I am sure I will come up with something!

I have been sewing this dress this week. I can't decide if I like it. It would probably look better on someone a size or two smaller than I am. I wanted something a little fuller. I love the square neckline though.

When I look at the picture here, I am thinking it looks like a nightgown. What do you think?

I am trying to decide how to hem it. I like this gingham bias tape, I just haven't made a decision.

Bias tape, No bias tape? Can't decide. That's how I work. I like to take my time and think about things.

I don't know if I should add the belt either. I am pretty much indecisive on this dress.

I think I like the belt and the bias tape looking at the pictures. Sometimes seeing pictures helps me decide.

I am getting ready to go to my sister Gail's in Alabama for the Fourth of July weekend. I may take the dress and have someone skinnier than me try it on.

Be Back Soon!

You need to keep the bias on it. Definately wear a belt. Belts can actually make you look smaller.
