Sewing Project for Maggie !!

I am going to make Maggie a little A-Line jumper ! I have always wanted to sew little dresses and now I really get to. When the boys were little, I smocked them little John-Johns. My mom used to sew me clothes when I was little and my Grandmother sewed too. So, I learned a little about sewing from them. Stay tuned...I hope it turns out pretty and straight !!!

What pretty material! I wish I could sew. I have a machine, but it just sits there. This is just not my season of life to sew I guess. Maybe for the grandchildren....

Straight would be good!! I always said I was going to learn to sew from my Mom but haven't yet. I wish I could have sewn Bella's 100 Good Wishes quilt but.....
Good luck on the dress. I can't wait to see it!

PS. How's Maggie's room coming???

Oooh, I can't wait to see how it turns out. I have been sewing for a couple of years and LOVE it. I especially love making dresses for my girls.
