This is one of those projects that sat in my head for a long time. And while it didn’t turn out exactly as I had envisioned, I do kind of like it. It’s an old pattern with a few changes, which is really a fancy way of saying I didn’t understand what the directions were saying about the continuous lap and the double fold bias that wasn’t to be folded.
Darn all those home economics teachers that retired and left generations of us to translate sewing patterns like a foreign language.
Vintage hankies are among my favorite linens to collect. They are so delicate and pretty. The one on the dress is a favorite as it was given to me by my oldest. It makes my heart beat happy thumps to know she picked it up and thought “gee whiz my mom would like this.” Thank you, H!
I hope your day is ticking along with things you find comfort in…see you later chums!
