I used left over fabric from my Very Easy Vogue V8631dress (still in progress), for this simple dress.

Happy sunning and swimming!

I like this shirt because it is made of Madras.

However, I feel like a boy whenever I put it on, so I never wear it.

With a little refashioning, I turned it into a girly tube top!

The buttons now run down the back, where I added a little shirring for shape.

A bright tote to say good bye to summer.

I had high hopes of making my own dress to wear to an outdoor wedding this summer. The dress was to be green, linen and strapless.

The big side bow turned out nicely.

The largest of which was the top, it was too big. And even with boning, I could not get it to lay correctly against my body.

Good thing I packed a backup dress!

I had one very special man in mind when I made my first blanket.

Concerts, picnic, endless possibilities!

Summer Scarves for all the moms in my family!

Sailboaters revel in the sunny summer wind.

While Leviathan lurks in the dark cloudy distance.

And the chase is on.
