I’ve been shopping….again!

I’ve been making some plans for a winter vacation with my husband, brother-in-law and sister-in-law.  The flights and hotel are now booked and I’m starting to get excited.  I have to be careful that I don’t “I can’t wait” so much that I miss the good stuff in between like Christmas and my birthday!  I did run to my favorite thrift store and buy some summery dresses because my sister-in-law wants us to spend the whole time in “cute” summer dresses.

3 short dresses and 2 long ones

For a girl who loves to dress in Victorian dresses, I do not have a lot of modern dresses.  They are not practical…go figure.  I do want to try my hand at making a dress and have the pattern, material and notions for it but can’t bring myself to cut up the pretty sari material I want to use for the dress.  Sometimes, I frustrate myself!

    Boy do I have thrift shop envy! If you want used tv trays and old barney sleepers, you could shop mine, but 4 frisky dresses, oh no! Maybe you could try your pattern in a cheap fabric first…? Did I just advise sewing prudence? Oh my.

    If YOU like the fabric and you like the patten…..make it. You will be just as proud of your work,as you are when you wear your Victorian.
