Vtg McCalls 4115 - in progress #2

My Lu & I went to see this last night:

It was SO MUCH FUN!  And today I had to get up at 4:30 a.m. to take kiddos to a school competition. I'm too pooped for words.  

More yellow gingham vintage dress progress.  Skirt is attached! And...Zipper is IN! (and much easier than before.  I think I just lost track of my brain on that last one that gave me troubles).   I veered from the vintage instructions just for finishing the skirt seam (I serged it.  You can't beat a serged seam to finish that mega-gathering!) 

As soon as I get some better light (and a hem!) I'll snap some shots ON me.  I know that's the most helpful thing.  I didn't plan on the last couple of things being straight dressform shots, I really prefer body pics too.  

Lastly...Happy Valentine's Day! 

I've had a crazy followers list the past few weeks.  I hate to lose the ones who leave, but I hope you find what you're looking for in an interesting blog, and if it's not here I completely understand.  We can't be all things to all people.  Thank you to all of you who do visit and stay!  I appreciate your firendship and your comments, but even if you're a lurker and just reading along, I'm thankful!  I hope you take something away from my sewing adventures.

On that 5th blogiversary is coming up.  I can barely believe I'll be starting my 6th year of blogging in March.  Wow!  I'm preparing a really fun vintage-y giveaway, so be on the lookout!


  1. Love the yellow gingham. Dont take the arrival and departure of followers to seriously or personally. Their lives and interest change. It's not a rejection of YOU, it's a realization that THEY need to travel a different path.

  2. Can't wait to see the finished dress modeled on you.

  3. Anxious to see you in your yellow dress. I know those 4:30 mornings, all to well. That's the time I get up on Fridays to go babysit my little grandsons. I die by the end of the day!

  4. Can't wait to see it! It looks fabulous so far!!

  5. Oh I bet Momma Mia was so fun. The best news about that is - you're no longer snowed in!

    Looking forward to seeing the yellow ginham on you. I bet it's lovely. What did you decide about buttons? g

  6. Happy late Valentine's Day. My hubby and I saw Mama Mia in Las Vegas a few years ago. We loved it!

  7. Yellow is my favorite color! Can't wait to see the finished dress....


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
