mama's turn {sewing}

It's about time someone other than the littles benefitted from my {read: Noonie's!} sewing skills, don't you think???

I'm giving this a try...

...yes, just as soon as the sewing machine hospital lets go of my machine, which they've held captive for oh, 3 weeks now..........aaaaaaaaaaaaah! please get it right, already!!

I'm thinking like the picture but in a longer length in a fun vintage-y print for Easter....some ladylike pumps, a cardi, and a prim & proper handbag. Hmmm...maybe I'll start with the shoes and go from there. Yes, shoes first.

How about you? Have you made anything out of Amy Butler's Anna Tunic pattern?? I'd love to see it!

Oh, I've not sewn myself anything in 15 years! I think this would be a great project and a very flattering top :)

I haven't made this pattern, but I love her fabrics and patterns. I'm sure it will turn out pretty.
