Brynwood Needleworks has a goal to send 100 dresses in August. She has 81 dresses thus far. Mother and I sent 5, and one of ours is pictured above. That fabric with the little scottie dog is just too cute, isn't it? 'Added some red rick-rack to decorate the pocket, along with their label. (Mother nor I are employed by the organization, nor do we receive any financial benefit from participating). This is such a great way to help the needy, and helps us to feel like we make a small difference in some girls' lives.
A few days ago I went out to our carport to make a quick trip to the store, to find that my truck door was open and the inside of my truck was ransacked! How in the world could this have happened, with our carport well-lighted at night and all car doors locked/windows rolled up? It really makes us feel violated and afraid. Thank goodness no real damage was done and nothing valuable stolen. They did not get into mother's car, just mine. We filed a police report, but do not expect the criminal to be caught as this happens all too often in our city. You all please be sure to keep your vehicles locked (even in day time) and well-lighted at night. Prim blessings.

Of course this dress is for my darling granddaughter for next summer, so made it a size larger than she is wearing currently. Shhh, don't tell her, lol! This dress will be part of her birthday 2016 gifts. The fastener is a back 14" zipper. Y'all be sure to check out this challenge before the end of July.

The Scientific Seamstress' Heat Wave/Frost Fever Party. This dress is called Simply Sweet, designed by The Scientific Seamstress. It is made of 100% cotton seersucker, in a navy and white small check. The large rick-rack trimming is red. The two front red bows are 7/8" wide grosgrain ribbons. Of course, this dress is made with love for my granddaughter. The link party will have a winner, to be chosen at the end of June.

There are several options included. The Pattern Difficulty Rating is:
