I tell you, I am serious about this dressmaking business

Do not mess with me.
My kids call this my "Doris Dress". As in Doris Day. It's kind of a retro-inspired 1950's shirtwaist.
Yes I have been busy. This is one of the garments I recently made. It's extremely comfortable and easy to make although the collar is a little squirrelly. The fabric is a blue/green check/plaid whathave you cotton shirting I got at Gail's fabulous fabric store for about $6.00 a yard. I bought something like 6 yards so I will be like Maria's kids wearing clothes cut from the draperies, traipsing around Marietta singing Do Re Mi.

  1. You and your dress look fabulous! You certainly do not look like you need to lose any weight! Do you still think you do?
