Wear a Dress Day 2


Today I am wearing this summer dress. It is supposed to be (only) 93 today, but that's still pretty hot, and I want to be cool. Tonight is Family Reading Night at our school from 6-7:30, so I am just going to stay late and get some work done. sigh - no wonder I'm not getting much sewing done...

Last night's bible study was really good. It's a course called Precepts. Our leader is fantastic, and come to find out she is a (retired) home ec teacher. She gave me the name of a lady who knows a lot about treadles, so I may be able to hook up with her have her show me a few things. I also found some sites on the internet that helped me as well. My machine appears to be a model 127 made in 1910.
Oh, back to the dress. It is a BWOF June 2008. The fabric is cotton lawn that I got at Fabric Fabric on LA PR weekend. Well, that's me, coffee cup in hand, wet hair - just about the way I leave the house each mornining!

I just recently started reading your blog and I have to say I really like that dress! It's quite flattering.

And I really enjoy your blog too. :)

I've been lurking on your blog for a little while. You do such beautiful work. Is that a Precepts for Life study? I've done several of those..they're great.

Your dress is very pretty. And the sewing machine looks right at home behind you!
