Sewing.... Emily's Military Ball Dress--Simplicity 1195

Emily & Andrew
Military Ball 2017

Emily & Andrew

Emily is graduating in just a few weeks..[Where did the time
go?] She needed a  dress for the military ball, that she

would be attending with her sweet boyfriend, Andrew.
He is such a nice fellow..
We went pattern/fabric shopping and had so much fun!!
She chose Simplicity 1195. We used the bodice from
the hi/low dress, and put the long skirt on it. She
chose the sparkle silver  trim to go around the waist. Such
a pretty accent . We also got lace to go in the shoulder

She and Andrew had a wonderful time. So happy I
could make the dress for her.

She will be attending her senior prom next week.. I have
to alter her dress..[ummmmh.. I must get started.☺]

Hope you have a  blessed week..

#1- Colette Violet Blouse
NOTE: click on photo to enlarge
I am making this blouse in a pink gingham
check.. It is already cut out, and mostly
sewed together.. I  have to add collar and
make button holes. I will be covering my
buttons too. Love this top pattern, I have
made several of them.

McCalls 7360
 If time permits, I will make this one for Fayes Sew a long
too. [I have revival at church this coming week, so
not sure  if I will finish it? We will see?☺]
 I  will be making it out of a blue white design poplin/cotton
fabric. Very soft and pretty. I will do the  short sleeve version.

Sewing... Emily's Mission.. Dresses for Little Girls-Part 2

               Emily's  Mission... Bring new Dresses to Every 
                 Little Girl in the Children's  Home.. Part 2

            Emily [my soon to be 18 yr old granddaughter] has
            a mission.. She  wanted every  little girl in the 
            Children's Home to have a new dress of their own.
            She ask me to help her..   She took dresses to them
            before Christmas[2016]. They were thrilled with the
            dresses. And very appreciative.

                                  S0----  When Spring time arrived , She 
           wanted to take them another dress. 💕 Emily is a special
           girl.. She has a heart for  people, who are in need. So very
           proud of her .

            I would like to say a special thank you to My and Emily's
            friend, Diane Osborne. She donated most of the fabric for
            these dresses..  We appreciate you . Hugs.

                 I would also like to say thank you to  my daughter in law
           Gina.  She helped sew these dresses, and made this possible.
           Emily and I appreciate you and love you.
