Today’s What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday photo catches me in the midst of sewing dresses.  Last night I finished my second version of Simplicity 2219.  I made the sleeveless version in blue tricot for a nightgown.  The magenta pile you see is the version with flutter sleeves that I cannot wait to wear to church on Sunday.

Although a more detailed review is forthcoming, I have to say that I LOVE this pattern.  (I was planning to write the review today, but got invited to hang out at a friend’s pool this afternoon.  Um, yeah… see ya tomorrow!)

The next dress I make will be McCalls 5838 out of that sweet white fabric with the hearts for my granddaughter’s third birthday.  The light blue will be the sash and sleeves.  Can you say adorable?

Although I haven’t been blogging much lately, I have been busy sewing.  I’ve got several reviews and crafty projects planned for ya’ll over the next few weeks, so keep watching this space!

If you’re wondering why in the world I’m posting a photo of my workdesk, go here to learn all about What’s on Your Workdesk Wednesday and travel the world via the desks of creative folks from all over.

Happy creating!

  1. Looks like a great dress. It’s funny how so many people have been so busy this summer, but are now slowly getting back to their blogs. the list is long at WOYWW and I know I won’t be able to visit everyone. so I am visiting people I have not met before.
    Love your site. I’ll be back

  2. Hi there, Thanks for sharing your desk this week! I’m dashing around this week like the white rabbit; places to go and things to see! Hope you have a lovely week.

    1. Well, I hope you have time to relax and enjoy what you’re seeing. If I can’t do that, I don’t usually bother. 😉
