Five Little Dresses all in a Row

Five Little Dresses all in a Row

The other day, I was on a roll and made all these little dresses in one day. Getting close to being ready to have my booth at the Vintage Fair.

As we go through life we invest time and energy into different things and some of them work and/or you just enjoy them and others hopefully can be a bit profitable. When I first retired after teaching for eight years for The Art Institute I painted furiously, and joined a cooperative art gallery. I sold a few pieces and actually sold another this week; but found I was giving more to local auctions than actually selling. Hummm…. What next?

Wrote a Slug Wars book, self-printed and took to several shops. It sells a little and people seem to like it. I went to class to learn how to collage on boxes, made a few and sold several of my Paris design, but still wasn’t satisfied.

Started sewing for my beautiful granddaughter Claire and I think after forty years of not sewing I might have found my new passion. I love putting together fabric for little girls dresses and will see where this adventure takes me. The artist in me loves seeing what different combinations I can put together. The ones featured here are fun everyday dresses made quickly with T-shirts and a yard of fabric.

Still coming up with ideas for the thought of having a space in a local vintage market and enjoying the process of sewing and making a few accessories to sell. Yesterday made three little dresses and will post the third one when I take a photo.

Wonder what we did before digital cameras, instant posts and life in the fast lane. Does anyone even remember a telephone booth, or a party line or home economics in high school? So much has changed and so little has changed in the same time.

Texting has taken the place of talking and the place of typing…

Little girls rare still little girls and love fun dresses to make them smile. BTW I had to make a couple more dresses for the girls, so they could wash the ones I made for them. Too Cute!
