I just love antiques! Though I have never learned to sew on this type of machine. I do own this gem! In the mirror,
you see a 1920's style lace overlay dress that I made several years ago. On the machine is a lap quilt that I also made.
If you have ever been to the Renaissance Festival, you will no doubt recognize this character! I had the privilege of making replacement costumes of the jesters on 3 separate occasions.
This costume I created was for Wax Museum Day at a local school. He looks so cute in it!
I LOVE Christmas! Several years ago, I made these quilted wall hangings for several people, including our children and my mother.
I made matching vests and ties for all the men and boys in this wedding party. The one in the kilt is the groom.
The muffs and shawls that I made may seem a little out of place on such a beautiful day , but the weather was unseasonably warm for a November wedding.
Other wedding attire are these ties and ascots,
A summer Luau would not be complete without lovely hula dancers in matching mu'us.
Prom! Such a special night in a young girls life. I made both of these dresses. One very special aspect of these is they have POCKETS!
I have made several costumes for theatre put on by
, but this was my favorite! A French Can-can dress.
Who wouldn't recognize Belle's dress from "Beauty and the Beast"! This was actually worn as a wedding gown for a bride who wanted a themed wedding.
Making an item smaller is generally doable, but making it bigger? This Mother-of-the-Groom had a pantsuit with a jacket that was too small. She purchased some lace and tulle that matches very well. I was able to enlarge the back and sleeves. The result was stunning!
I made this Star Wars Tree Skirt for newleweds first Christmas. They LOVED it! The way the metallic fabric reflects the lights from the tree is actually very pretty.
