My girl returns from her exchange trip today and I cannot wait to continue our summer lark. The two of us are working on a sewing project inspired by the cover of Seventeen magazine, and it is time to get to the store to catch the end of the sale on ‘fashion knits’! Once we designed and sewed a ‘hamburger dress’ that had a curly ruffle row of lettuce, some looped rope purple onions, an orange triangle of cheese, quilted tomato slices and other fun-to-dream-up decorations. The summer dress on our sewing table now is all about draping and complementary prints and will challenge us both. It’s all a reminder of fond memories of sewing with my sisters and mom.
