Take a Word.. Sewing..
I am so honoured today that Marie asked me to host our Sewing Challenge this week on Take a Word. I thought I'd go for a more amusing take and found all these pictures online.That wonderful patch in the background and the old posters. You may have heard the old slogan from wartime days, when you had coupons to buy some new clothes. So you remade your old ones.
Also while browsing for the same thing I came across a picture of the actual pattern I made my wedding dress from. I was gobsmacked! So I had to do another one. I altered the neckline of the dress to make a deep V and it was made from 9 1/2 yards of heavy rose patterned satin. I wore my mother's pearls and that is my stepfather, bless him, trying to straighten my veil. So it was One Wet and Windy day in October 1955!
I'm so looking forward to seeing all your sewing pics.
Thanks for visiting me. Love and Hugs,
