Old News?

I was just perusing one of my favorite blog spots,, and thought you might like to read this old news article. It is amazing how perceptible some folks are and yet it is either ignored or placated out of the mind by "preachers of change."

Interesting take on current common clothing styles

Check out this site for some different thoughts on our present society and how "females" dress.

Spring....will it warm up ?

Garage sales and family activities and getting a storage shed built as well as homeschooling have taken up most of the month. I had thoughts of doing "sugar free" living during April, but we have quite a few birthdays and that was pushed to May.

Now in May "sugar free" will be limited to a little less sugar consumed.

We have acquired a travel trailer that will accommodate all of us and we are gearing up for our first trip to see our # 4 son graduate from Bible college next weekend. Excitement is in the air.

I made a couple new dresses for the girls. I use McCalls 4432. When I don't have much time it amounts to sewing dresses that are simple. I just add elastic to the waist as my girls have tiny waists and it looks better to have it snugged in a little on them.

New Look has some cute and easy dresses for girls sizes 3-8. Check out this one as well as this one. These are dresses with back zippers and if you opt for the invisible zipper, it goes a little faster.

Have any of you had a hard time finding patterns for girls dresses that are modest for sizes 10-14? I have found some simple ones from Common Sense Patterns , Candle on the Hill, and Ringger Clothing. Here is one that has more detail to it for dressier occasions as well as this one.

Happy Spring sewing!
