muriel-dress-1This dress took weeks of designing, planning, sewing, and resewing, but it is now all done.
This dress will be called Muriel. It is based on a picture of a 1911 special occasion dress.
I made it to honor my neighbor and friend who taught me about sewing and inspired me to persue it professionally. I will present it to Muriel for her birthday on Thursday. I think she will be honored that I made a dress and named it after her.

Still working on one last design to put on the website ( It is the Muriel dress. It is the dress I am making in honor of Muriel’s upcoming birthday. As of today I have 13 days to get it finished. I have the under dress almost complete, and I have gotten the fabric for the over dress.  I just need to sit down and figure how I am going to put it all together. With spring chores weighing heavy on my list of things to do, I have put Muriel dress aside for a few days. I realized today time is approaching to present this to her.
