Wondrous Wednesdays: It’s done!

It is finished…my lovely rose print dress is complete!

I thoroughly enjoyed hand overcasting the hem edge, hand felling the armscye and neckline facings, hand-picking the zipper, and self-lining the bodice.

The china silk skirt lining adds just the right amount of body to the box pleated skirt.

Ahh…there is simply nothing that matches the joy of couture sewing techniques!

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
