Monday

my first pair of dress maker shears!

aren't they just magnificent?
I also took some photos of the U of I costume shop two nights ago that I can share very soon!
also, here is a new design I drew last week. I was thinking the deep blue side deails could be satin or felt. This dress is inspired by the 40's!
Have a wonderful day!
Love, polly

Congrats on your Ginghers!! I adore mine. :o) Cute design too! A peter pan collar matching that lovely blue would be cute on it as well!
