Beautiful Grand Daughter Klaire turned 16! She lives in Texas, I live in Northwest Missouri. So was unable to attend her pool party celebration. Her favorite color is Periwinkle blue. She does not like fuzzy soft lounge pants. So I made her a pair of large pocketed, lounge pants. They are in the new style high waist, slim legged, and of course they are as close to her favorite color as I could get. I picked out a medium weight linen from https://fabrics-store.com.
I want to especially thank, Stitching Grandma at WordPress. Com
She was the encouragement I needed to start sewing for my grand children again. I am super excited about this simple gift, and I am praying she is too.
Thank you Grand Daughter Navada, you are an awesome model. Both Grand Daughters are the same size, it was a blessing to have her live close to me for hemming.
Here is my favorite dress of all time. I just came in from feeding our neighbors dog and it’s chilly here so after removing my coat it was all wrinkled up. Nothing could change how I feel about this dress though, it is the best dress I have ever made.
I would wear it everyday anywhere if I could. The buttons are from Germany a gift from my Momma a few years back. This is the same pattern I used for this dress.
Notice how I modified the bodice and no buttons.
The pattern was free on line from Fabrics-store.com

Can’t seem to make enough of these. Garden, Biking, Walking, and extra protection on brighter days driving. My favorite is the linen. I made one to match a linen dress I made recently. I will post a picture need to get my main man to take a picture of it on me.
Great gifts too!
Thanks for stopping by.
