It doesn't matter if you dream of the past, the present or the imagined....
Why-oh-why can't more of us get back to wearing skirts. I LOVE the way they look . . . so feminine! Lovely skirt on Justine. That's gotta have a lot of material in it with the insets between the gores, no?
I really should wear more skirts. I actually wear them more often at home than at work.It does look nice on her, doesn't it. And yes, it has about 4 yards of fabric, but I love the fullness in the back.
You are soo talented! I love your sewing machine!
Thanks! I can't claim to have sewed this on the treadle machine, though. I've got a lovely Elna machine. I just got the treadle in August and haven't quite mastered the rhythm yet.
I agree with Mama Pea - they're so comfortable and useful! You are very, very talented!
Goodness, you guys are going to make me have a big head! But thanks for the compliments.
Laura Ingalls in her schoolteacher days! I love it!
LOL! Yes! I hadn't thought of that. But actually, on V's side of the family they are related somehow. Some distant cousin several times removed, I think. His Mom researched it and Justine has a notebook detailing the relationship.
3rd cousin 8 times removed :)
LOL! I'm glad you remembered.
