I'm back and I have "sewing back"!!

When I sew for long periods of time the center of my back aches and I call it "sewing back".  Last year, I made a wedding dress and 9 bridesmaid dresses. I had major "sewing back".  I left my sewing room a mess and didn't enter for quite a while.
Last Friday I got out some fabric and made a vintage baby dress for a friend.  I DIDN"T get a photo of it, but I plan on returning to this blog to record sewing projects.  Here are four dresses from the wedding party.

And here is the wedding dress

So many dresses

On Sunday night one of my laurel girls called to see if she could borrow one of Audrey's high school dance dresses.  I asked Audrey to go and gather them up from her closet.  I was surprised there were so MANY.  She didnt bring down her favorite (the green taffeta concerto dress) But we had a large pile of dresses.  They were all tried on and we oohed and aahed and thought she looked cute in most of them.  (Audrey was secretly happy that the blue senior ball gown didn't fit)  She chose which one?  Scroll down to see.

And she picked this one . . . .
