One woman's toile is another woman's treasure

I've been on a finishing spree. Would it surprise you to know that I have half started projects all over the place? That's right, nearly a year later I've got wedding presents just a few stitches from finished, a skirt, dress, quilts and the like.

So when the sewing itch got me I decided to finish off a few goodies rather then start new ones.
And here she is! The toile for a pattern my aunt so lovingly made for me. It didn't quite fit my diamentions but a friend came round for bible study and fell in love with it. All it needed was the finishing of neck/arm holes and a hem. Congraulations Amy! I still can't believe you would wear this to an interview!

Amy's dress (nee Rosey's toile)
Diana is going to be feeling the cold now but I'll have her wearing a new creation without too much delay!


  1. That is gorgeous. And now I know what toile means, so I've learned something. The day is not wasted! :)

  2. I can totally imagine Amy wearing that to the next Sci-Fi convention. It has a slightly spacey feel!
