Lucy dress: a special project to me!

The Lucy dress was maybe the quickest dress I have ever sewn! All you need is a couple of rectangles, some elastic and enough patience to sew perfectly parallel.... Lisa loves her new 'mermaid dress'! What a sense of imagination!…

A story about… magic!

Did you ever sew clothes that didn't fit at the end? A while ago I had sewn this Mambo dress. Can you still remember this one? Sadly it just didn't fit! Too small... I still love this dress a lot.…
