Whew! Sometimes it's a heck of a lot of effort to get a good photo.
The weather is turning cooler here, so I was inspired to do a little back to school sewing. A true 1970's knock-off: a peasant dress, widened at the sides and an above-the-knee hem. And it's brown. Yep. The same brown Mom made me wear all throughout my childhood. Funny how I'm drawn to it now but despised it then.
The blog Penny Carnival is having a Back-To-School Sew Along from now until mid-September with a prize (who doesn't love a prize?) The details are HERE. It's as easy as making something in the spirit of Back To School and posting a picture on their Flickr page. Even I can commit to that. The blog has a wonderful round up of great patterns for inspiration, all of them insanely cute (Warning: hazardous to the wallet).
