Pinning Proof

I  hope you all had a great weekend.  We didn't have too many plans, which I loved.  I enjoy having a weekend to just be able to do things as they come.  We enjoyed a great Friday night football game, watching my brother-in-law.  Then Saturday we had a great rainy day-day.  It was so fun! We lounged around in sweats, played games, watched a movie, and I baked my first German Chocolate cake.  It was really fun to make!

I hope you all had a good weekend too.

I wanted to show you a little sneak peak progress on some of the dresses I started earlier last week.  I'm making several at once, so the green and white fabric I showed you earlier hasn't been touched yet.  I've realized that I can't just do one thing at once.  I like being able to change back and forth between fabrics.  it makes it more exciting.  I'm weird...

Anyway, here's some proof for you that I am in fact pinning!
This is a really soft cotton fabric.  I like how it falls on the dress. The gold is just the edging for the inside of the neckline, but I think the inner details matter too.

I love this vintage fabric!  I've had it for so long now and thought it needed to be put to good use.  It has such a neat pattern.  I don't know if I can let it go.  Do you ever have that problem with fabric...or is it just me?  Why am I so attached to woven pieces of string??? I don't know.

Looking forward to working more on them this week.  I'll keep you updated.


  1. Haha! It's nice to see the proof of your pinning. It really does make accurate sewing easier. I love the gold binding! I think that little details like that make the finished product so much more special, even if you're the only one who can see it. :)

  2. I'm the say way! I just love fabric and can't get enough of it and often hate cutting into it! Can't wait to see what you're making. I'm sure it will be brilliant!
