Wow, I need a third arm

Im going crazy over here. Call it cabin fever, whatever, I'm sewing up a storm. I finished the Art Dress, I finished the 1940s back button up top, I have two dresses cut for my little lady Lorna, and I'm also just about done with the ric rac Simplicity dress. No pics of course, but I'll do them soon I promise.


  1. Hello!

    I'm a new member at "We Sew Retro" so I don't know how it works yet. . . But I was going back a few pages (okay, more than a few - I'm hooked!) and saw this post you made, where you are looking for a swap of a wrap dress pattern:


    What I don't know is if when I post a comment on a post, the original author gets notified. . . So I hopped over your blog to find contact info, because your pattern is my size and I have one your size. . . Not sure if it's what you want though!

    This is the one I have:

    The collar is different, but it’s a wrap style and vaguely similar. . . Not sure if it’s similar enough. . .

    I know the envelope of my pattern is not in good condition, but I’m not sure about the contents.

    If you’re at all interested, I’ll pull it out and see if it’s complete, and take pics for you, so you can decide. Otherwise, I’ll be lazy and not bother, LOL!

    Sorry for sticking this on your blog, but again - wasn't sure if it would get to you via We Sew Retro or not. And besides, I got to see your blog, and added you to my feed! :)


  2. I love that idea! My envelope is pretty mangled but the pieces are all there. I would be happy to send it on over to you. I haven't checked the sew retro site but I'm pretty sure that it doesn't notify me when I get a new comment (or if it does I haven't figured it out yet). You can let me know thru my blog or email me. I think if you view my profile there is a link to email me. I'll add you to my list too! Yeah for pattern swapping, if you make it you have to send me a pic too! I would love to see how it comes out.
