Sew Beautiful 128
Just a quick post because I am waiting for our county animal control to show up. Someone dumped two puppies on our farm this morning. They are about 3 months old. One is a german shepard and the other is a white lab mix.
I have them pinned up in the chicken house right now. Chickens are outside.
Everyone has their nose out of joint. Old dogs, horse, chickens and daughter. The 3 cats could care less.
Back to the subject of this post....... The New Sew Beautiful #128 should be arriving in your mailbox and in the store very soon.
This issue is the Ribbon Issue. The whole issue is gorgeous!
Helen Lively has a flower girl dress with woven ribbons. Cindy of "Cindy & Company" has a jacket in a multitude of sizes in this issue. Pattern in included in the center fold. And Sarah Norris has a most beautiful bonnet that is just exquisite.
I know I am leaving someone out.
This is issue that I will keep close at hand as a reference manual and inspiration.
In this issue I have a smocked dress with 3 ribbons.
When you think of my dress think of all the possibilities. The ribbons can be done in any size and in any color. Think about ribbons in 3 Easter colors or the colors of a wedding. The ribbons could be three shades of pink or green or even college color or shade of Autumn.
Because the dress is a Pascale, you can make it sleeveless, with cap sleeves, long sleeves or with a bolero jacket. The skys the limit.
Just an FYI- Please note the name change on the blog. The URL is the same. ~janet
