I am so behind on LJ these days! Please forgive my lack of responses to your posts. I am reading and enjoying them! :> Lack of personal sewing updates will hopefully end this week. I'm going to try very hard to set aside some time to actually work on my current projects (shock I know!). In the meantime, here is some linkage I thought you would enjoy… (see I’m not above bribery :>)

Found trolling through e-bay - so fun!

I can absolutely imagine you making just such a dress. Stripes, stars...what's not to like?

It never occured to me. *wicked grin*

That is the most bizarre dress I think I've ever seen. Truly ;)

And ooh! Pettiocat. OK. Why do I always type it pettiocat instead of petticoat? Seriously, it's like every time...

Anyway, I love it. I'm glad A-the bidding is over and B-I'm still all EWW! BUGS! and have no desire to buy new antiques :)

Bizarre but imaginative! :>

Bugs - icky, icky! At least you have given me a good excuse to not buy vintage clothing besides the ever lame "I'm broke"! :>
