They make a rather odd model for my hats, but they seem to fit and you can see what they look like. Thought I would add the dresses that the hats are for. I put off making them, but they were much easier than AI ever thought they would be. Trying to think how to make a business with this. One that actually makes money. Any ideas? Maybe I will make some and put them on Etsy and see what happens. I do have an Art Show next month, so would be painting. I can do that with the bandaid decorating my hand from my slash earlier or should I say my encounter with the rotary cutter. I do now acknowledge that they are quite sharp.
Holly is five and when I saw this fabric, thought it could make another “fast & Furious” T-shirt dress. I buy the T-0shirts at Walmart for under $5.00 and the fabric where ever I can find it. This fabric is from Walmart and it took about a yard at $3.00 a yard, so here is a way to make a really fun little dress for literally pennies. I am going to start making sun hats to match the dresses. I made a couple yesterday to match dresses I made in the past and they were so easy, I thought I would make more. Maybe I should try to think of a way to market these, so I actually make a little money. For now I am just having a great time sewing again after not for over 40 years.
This is another one of my “Fast & Furious” dresses. I had fabric left over from a Fund Raiser I helped on for the Boys & Girls Club, and thought it might be interpreted into a cute T-shirt dress. I am starting to think taking a larger piece and adding it to the top of the dress is more fun than something small. Most people just add a small appliqué to the bodice and it looks a little floaty, so I thought I would try something slightly different. I loved Paris and hope to go back again soon.

This is a pattern for the 1950’s that I found on Ebay. I am thinking it needs a little more punch, so may add some red stars on the corner of the collar and maybe a row of white rick rack about an inch or two from the bottom. Girls size four.
Yesterday I made this fun little argon for a friend for her Wedding Shower this weekend. It was so easy to make and think it turned out fun. Love the romantic look from the 50’s, but with contemporary colors.
