    This looks like a fantastic booK!!!! I am currently working on children’t clothes with a disney theme. My children and grandchildren are going to disney World in November so I have been very busy with that. Also am busy getting ready for the Christmas season. I am seriously thinking about using the party dress pattern. Had fun with it several years ago!

  178. I just traced the pattern for a dress.

  179. I am working on a disappearing 9 patch table runner in fall fabrics.

  180. Jolly Bars are the only type of precuts not currently in my stash! I love the idea and need to make a project with them soon! I just finished one big project and am currently pulling fabrics to make a quilt for my son. No girlie fabrics for him, so I may need to go shopping!

  181. Pam Loberger says

    I’m starting to work on my Grandaughters’ (Neko 7, Paige 5) Christmas dresses. I was in a quandary as to what to do this year, as in the past I had done things like black and white plait taffeta (using the Party Dress Pattern with a huge red satin sash and bow) and red silk empire-waisted dresses with full skirts and antique lace at the waistline and edge of the puffed sleeves)p. The girls always looked lovely, but I was thinking that I’d do something more whimsical this year. However, I didn’t want them to be too cutesy or too cliche.

    Imagine my delight at your newsletter with the Georgia Vintage pattern and Riley Blake Pixie Noel prints. I may incorporate a bit more whimsy using some embellishment techniques I learned in my classes with Kari Mecca and her “Whimsy Sticks (TM). The perfect answer to my delemma and something I’m certain the girls will be thrilled to wear. Needless to say, that’s my current project.

    Now all I need is something equally as perfect for my four-year-old grandson, Rhys.

    Thanks for all the wonderful ideas.

  182. My sewing room is fully of projects, but on the table for this weekend is my 5 year old’s Cinderella Halloween costume. She asked to have a dress like the recent live action version of Cinderella so my table has lots of blue satin and tulle all over and my clothes feel like they are permanently glittered. The book looks awesome, thank you for doing such a fun giveaway!
