Edelweiss


I've come down with a bit of cold, so yesterday in my disoriented state I decided Pony Girl needed a 70's style Boho dress, so I made one, as you do. I just grabbed an old curtain panel and a bit of leftover shot cotton and whipped it up quick sticks. 

I've also decided that she should wear it with a vintage apron à la The Sound of Music. We'll see if she agrees to this.


And this wrinkled mess is a design in progress; the bodice for a dress. While I liked my original design, as you can see from my slap dash markings that many changes are coming.


Oh now this is getting tricky. I might wait until my head is clear again before tackling this further!

What are you up to?

The dress is so pretty. I can't believe you did it in just one day. I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who uses old curtains in sewing; I like to embroider on them, for one thing.

Love the dress! Reminds me of little house on the prairie!
