Going Once, Going Twice..... Sold!

 My latest smocked Bishop Dress will be going 
to the local Rotary Club Auction.  My DH is a
member and every year we make items to 
donate to the auction.
 We live in Kentucky and anything with
"Wildcat Blue" on it, is sure to be a hit.
 A pair of matching socks.
 The dress is a 12-18 months size, but really
this style of dress fits much longer as the 
sleeves are full and it is longer in length.

 Next is an angel gown that will be traveling
to Vicki for use at her hospital.  
 It is windy here today, but the sun is shining and there
is a hint of Spring in the air.
 The color is a soft off white with matching thread
used in the smocking.
 The hem technique is new to me. You fold the
hem up twice and stitch along the fold.  This creates
a tuck that holds the hem in place.

Next an infant jacket.  The pattern is in the
December 13/January 14  issue of Sew Beautiful Magazine.
 Of course Wendy's version is covered in beautiful
embroidery.  She has exquisite needle skills.
 My version shows that the pattern is a basic 
simple style.  Don't be intimidated when looking
at patterns and magazines.  Most items are simple
basic styles with added detailing.
 I used a sweet rosebud flannel for the lining
and pockets.  A vintage tablecloth was used
as the fashion fabric.  
Added detailing of a folded rose, seam binding
and a touch of embroidery.
 The tablecloth fabric is so soft, from years of washing.
Don't you love my model...we haven't played together for
years, but she is still a sweetie. 
Thank you "Susie" you were the perfect model, so still,
 patient and you did not mind the cold wind blowing.

Love to all,
Deb
