For my new summer shirt dress I used the Colette Patterns Hawthorne. I *heart* this pattern.
The fabric was a dream to work with. It is a very lightweight cotton, similar to voile, and it has a gorgeous vintage inspired rose print. I purchased it on Etsy from Gertieinroses.
I wear my cute, Bettie Page pink bow belt with my new dress.
Thank you handsome hub for supporting my sewing habit, and for giving me encouragement and sometimes suggestions, and thank you for being my photographer.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
