My friend is having a Pattern Give-Away

My very talented friend, Sara Norris


Sara Norris, ltd.

is introducing her new line of patterns to the world.

To celebrate the launch, she is having a two pattern give-away!

I own the "Irby" dress pattern & need to get busy making it.

If you'd like to enter her give-away to win BOTH of

these patterns, just go to her blog, HERE

before July 12th.

To illustrate that it can also look terrific
in more casual fabrics,
here are a few versions that my dear friend, Niener
made for her granddaughter.

Just to let you know, all of these photos were
posted with Niener's permission.

What fun!!

My Ms. Caroline will the twirl factor!

  12. Oh, gosh...I wish I could sew but...I just hate it! Isn't that terrible...and me with 7 granddaughters!! Shameful..I tried for years to develop an interest; my mother was a wonderful seamstress..but it just made me nervous so I quit trying.

    hugs, bj

  13. Hi Rett! Oh, what a darling pattern. Sara's sewing is so beautiful, isn't it? I have a little grand daughter but she's only 4 months old! One day! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  14. Rett~the twirl is delightful and especially wonderful for frolicking in a summer dress.
    It makes me want to bump it up a notch and turn over my glue gun for a sewing machine, lol.

    Sweet wishes,

  15. Hi Rett
    This is such a cute dress! I wish i had a granddaughter...maybe someday I'll be blessed with one. I love my grandson so much but girl's clothes are definitely more fun to buy :-)
