Finished the apron and made a pair of matching pot holders. I love the gathered skirt so much! And the big pockets. I quilted as I went for the pot holders. So fast and easy!
Anyway, the gathered waist on the apron got me thinking about some summer dress sewing. So I dug up some suitable fabrics from my stash. Three cottons cotton/blends and a lovely border print rayon. The rayon will gather so beautifully without a lot of bulk.
Then I found some floral sheer fabric I bought two years ago. And a remnant I think would be the perfect lining. I just have to decide on a style I like. I like the shape of both dress patterns shown below. I'd go knee length though.
Least of last was my funny Valentine dress!! Made from a couple pieces of fabric found at Value Village last fall. I bought it with the intent of making my granddaughter a Christmas dress otherwise I wouldn't have had any red fabric on hand - I never wear red! So it was a fun project and I used up every bit of fabric. The lace has been in my stash for 30 years........

|Also a hanger cover with a hidden zippered compartment. Perfect for hiding valuables! Or if you're like me, a perfect place to hide things that you don't want to forget where you've hidden!! LOL|
