My New Red, White, & Blue

This past week I did something remarkable, something unusual. I bought fabric and finished my project by the end of the week. Yippee!  This is certainly an unusual feat! The best, most remarkable part?: I didn’t even cry!

Aha! Truly my not crying over a sewing machine is a miracle; for years my Momma (and a few good friends) have patiently taught me how to measure, cut, and sew all while putting up with my fits of frustration and tears. And finally, by God’s grace, all their work has paid off.  Thank you Mom for being so patient with me (and for snapping my pictures!). :)









What thinkest thou?

  Dear friends, if you are one of my kind (you know, the clumsy-fingered, yardstick challenged, get-your-bobbin-all-tangled-up kind of seamstresses) take heart! It will get easier although it may take time. Trust me.

Happy sewing to you all!



  1. It's a lovely dress! I'm also learning to sew, and was thinking of making some jumpers that I could put a jacket over.

  2. you are invited to follow my blog

  3. Great job! The fit is superb. Did you use a back zipper, or is it just a pullover?

  4. That looks absolutely lovely!! You look so nice in a dress. :) And how wonderful to say that you made it, too! :) I have never liked following instructions on sewing patterns. I much prefer to just wing it... but, sometimes it is nice to have directions to follow! ;) haha! :)
    Nicely done, Frannie!!

  5. Thank you all!

    It is just a pull over--the pattern calls for a zipper but I found it was not necessary.


    Blessings to you all!


Hey there, darling!

I'd love to hear your thoughts -- leave a comment below and I'll do my best to give you a reply. There is nothing sweeter then hearing from my readers!

Love, blessings and a steaming cup of coffee,

Frannie Anne
