From the Craft Room

Ok, so I am renaming today “From the Craft Room” instead of “From the Studio” I think it sounds better. Anyways I spent almost all day sunday sewing this dress. It was a pattern I found at the recycling center in Holden, MA. It’s is the most amazing place- people from the community donate old art’s and craft supplies and then its open to the public to come and take for free- its like a free store of supplies. Its great- I love it!! They have an amazing selection of old patterns and I always grab a few every time I am there. This pattern is from 1985. I shortened it a little and decided I would wear a belt with it instead of making the sash. Although I am a slow slow sewer- it came out pretty good in the end. I really love the back of it. I don’t have a picture of it on, but you can see from the pattern.
