Horitzontal Stripes.

When laying out a pattern, the grain of the fabric will have the stripes running up and down. While in an upscale boutique I spotted the stripes on the yoke running horizontal.  My first thought was, "That is wrong."  My second thought was, "That is different, and I like it!"  It just added a little interest to the garment and might come in handy when you are running short on fabric. 

Are you a rule breaker when you sew?

Mother's Day

Sweet little girls all dressed up, how proud their mother must have been.  They were the first of 10 children, 5 girls, and 5 boys.  The picture was taken in 1914 and the baby was my maternal grandmother.

Those Sweet Legs

I love outfits with elastic at the leg openings, which are also know as bubbles, on the little guys. A soft elastic is very forgiving and will not pinch their thighs. And most of all.. I like to show off those sweet legs and not a printed diaper!

The View

Being a visual person, I find it hard to stare at a blank wall while ironing.  The old window frame, string, paper clips, and photos.  Just what the room needed!
