Happily sewing for 40+ years. I love sewing for children, especially vintage and classic styles. I love sailor suits and have made several. One was featured in a Sew Beautiful article, as well as another little romper in another issue. I am the delighted Nana of two little boys and am the founding member of the "Boys are Fun to Sew for Too!" Club. I do a little sewing for adults, a bit of home dec and am just venturing into a bit of quilting. But garment sewing is my first love and sewing for babies and children will always be my favourite!

Oh my, this is so pretty! I love the vintage Vogue patterns and this is so ethereal and delicate. The details are a wonderful complement to the design.Posted: 10:01 pm on August 24th 2011
This is lovely! The vintage lace makes a beautiful collar, and it is perfect with the sweet print. The wing needle stitching is so pretty and delicate... wonderful work. I'm sure your friend's granddaughter will love it!Posted: 09:20 am on August 23rd 2011

Very nice! I love making these shirts for the big and little guys in my life... I love this cowboy fabric. These shirts don't get boring when you can use all of these fun fabrics!Posted: 10:58 pm on July 5th 2011
Great dress! Thanks for including all of those details. It fits your perfectly too and looks just lovely!Posted: 10:57 pm on July 5th 2011
This is just beautiful! The pattern is wonderful, and your work on it is superb. Those fabrics that have been in the stash awhile are just aging like fine wine. I hope :)Posted: 10:36 pm on June 29th 2011
Thank you both for your kind words! It was a fun project and it will soon fit my younger grandson! LillianPosted: 10:45 pm on June 10th 2011
Lots of great technical info here. I enjoyed reading about godets, sewing inset corners and the "Project from the Past: Fabric Florabundas."Posted: 01:06 am on May 19th 2011
