Ruffles, I want more! That’s so me..the more..not the ruffles.


12 yards of ruffles and 24 yards of french lace is gorgeous!

Heirloom Lavender Romper with imported Swiss Embroidery SOLD!

New stuff in the store finally and working on others. Lots of lacy and ruffles everywhere in the studio!

Actually finished over 225 yards of ruffle edge Tuesday (both sides). It was almost peaceful and Zen like to do it all at once. Now if the powers that be could just make a Serger that didn’t sound like a flipping jack-hammer I would do it again today. Dang that thing is so loud I couldn’t hear anything else going on in the house. Today I still feel the vibration in my bad hand…and my tushy…(the floor was even vibrating me through the stool). Oh the joys of sewing.

Off to put it all together,and pin it. Should be posting new stuff again on Friday God willing! Already sold the purple heirloom outfit and need another up soon!

New How to video coming next week on working with “poor man’s lace”. Very appropriate to the current sad economy. We need some light hearted clothing to not feel so weighed down don’t you think?

  1. Serging is a MIRACLE. I remember double turning on ruffles—turn once and once AGAIN, then basting OR pining OR hand stitching—Ah-GG. Mind you, it was sort of ZEN once I got all THAT CRAP preparation DONE!! I bet I did 30 miles of hand stiching double folded rubbles on a dance custom. Would I do it again—-mmm? Forget how to do it—been too long. Does the serger sound better now?
