View 3, Advance 8617, from 1958 – my “tropical dress.” I made this dress second.  The kimono sleeves give it a more relaxed fit.  Nessa has the best expression in this photo!  She looks skeptical.

I like to make things. This includes sewing, pattern drafting, quilting, working with cement, and I like building houses. When I sew, I generally like to make historically accurate vintage reproductions. This goes for construction methods and finished product.
