Embarking on new adventures! Just purchased this book, “Famous Frocks: Patterns and Instructions for Recreating Fabulous Iconic Dresses” by Sara Alm & Hannah McDevitt. I just bought a sewing machine to learn how to make my own clothes as well doing some artistic material explorations if the machine can handle it. I’ve never made my own clothes before, but this book seems perfect. The are dresses from the 1930′s-1980′s I believe. Seeing some patterns for Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Jackie O, Diana Ross and more. Perfectly matched to my love of the retro and dresses. Ready to design!

My most recent crochet and sewing project. Scarf is crocheted with 2 kinds of Lion Brand yarn: “Amazing” and “Silk Mohair. Twisted together they make a really soft textured scarf.
Drawstring bag made with my new sewing machine. Still trying to get the hang of it. Hope to be making clothes soon. Name is hand sewn.
Hope you are loving the gift Raylene! I hade fun designing it!
