To all who mourn in Israel, He will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. Isaiah 61:3

2012 Year in Review...Dresses..

And lastly, here we are at dresses.  Not many were made this year as things happened and my list of "want to make" didn't get checked off quite like I had planned.  That's ok.  The good thing about what I do, is I can still make what I didn't get to this year!  Yeah!!!

1920s day frock

1912 Tea Suit

1912 Day Dress

1903 Sailor Suit

1903 Sailor Suit

1903 Girls Sailor Dress

Teens Era Masquerade Gown....the goddess Demeter

1910 wool winter suit.

Well, this year is done, sewing wise.  I must say that I enjoyed when each project was over, the dress/hat/underwear was worn, the event was attended and the fun was had!  The ending of every project just means the beginning of a new one for me.  More planning, researching, finding the "just right" fabric and trim, sewing, fitting, and finally wearing.  That is what is so fun!  This is a way of doing things that doesn't need to end when the last seam has been sewn!

Bring on 2013!!!!
