What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Summer Dress


Here are a few snapshots of the dress I made a few days ago. I am not entirely pleased with it because I wish the skirt had more fullness. Knowing, though, that all the fabric was bought at a yard sale for under $1.00 and I only had SO much made me feel better. I purposely made it the largest size I could so that Corynn can wear it NEXT summer. I made that decision after inventoring Corynn's summer dresses and realized she had MORE than plenty! :-)

Now I have two
handmade dresses under my belt! Posted by Picasa

You did a great job, Rebecca. I love the dolphins on the top. You did a fine job of centering them. I would be very happy with the results. And the buttonhole looks great too!

Precious!

And I followed your link back to the previous dress. The patriotic one. And made a comment, because I'd never seen that entry before. Oh I love that one tooooo!

Thanks Mrs. Bibby. The buttonholes need work, but they are functional anyway! :-)

MN~Thanks. That was my first ever clothing project and I was (am) so proud of it! I used a pajama pattern and just made a few alterations to make it look more like a dress. Maybe someday I will have another little girl who can wear it! (I hope!)
