Finally...the dress is done

It all started with a cute McCall's pattern #5672 that E helped me pick out from a selection of suggested patterns. Although it said "easy" I was told by my instructor Sue that it was a difficult dress to sew (especially since this was my first). I can't wait to sew the jacket and the pants outfit down the road. 

Here are all of my cut out pattern pieces.

Sorry I didn't take any pictures while sewing all the pieces together. I think I was just so involved with getting it done it didn't even cross my mind.

But, without further adieu here is the finished dress. Hope you like it.

I am currently taking an Alterations class and I am revamping a pair of boys cargo pants to be a pair of long shorts for our nephew G.

Have a wonderful evening.

Hope all of you are having a wonderful weekend so far. Yesterday, E and I went antiquing and we had the greatest time. I have always had a passion for vintage Americana. I always wonder what home it had and the memories behind each piece. Here are some of our cute finds.

We found a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye Camera in the box from the mid 1950's. I love these vintage cameras.

We also came across a Milk Can. I grew up with one as a decorative piece in my parents home and always had a soft spot for them. I loved how this one was painted blue. Do you all think I should leave it blue or try to bring it back to its original charm??

I also love Depression Glass and E found this adorable juicer.

I saw this and said it this has E written all over it. It just needs a little cleaning and it will be perfect right near his workbench as a decorative piece. I love the color of it, the handles and the picture of Handy Andy.

Then last, but, not least...I saw these wooden spools and fell in love.

UPDATE ON THE DRESS:  I know you are all wanting to see the dress, but, unfortunately it is not finished. I have the button holes made, but, I'm not sure if I have them exactly where I want them. I will try again later or tomorrow. If not, I have a Alterations class on Monday and will have my instructor Sue help me out. I figured once I get this done and I know I am doing it right, it won't take me this long next time.

Have a wonderful day!!
