I’m completely overwhelmed with UFO’s*!  I have so many projects in the works and I never seem to finish them.  I’ve got dresses half made and aprons from men’s shirts I want to finish and sell.  I have foldable to purse size grocery bags in the works. My head is spinning! If I could finish these and list them in my Etsy store I could be a very wealthy woman!

I’ve decided to attack them one at a time and I’m posting them as I tackle them right here on this blog, hoping for encouragement from all of you to get my butt to work. Right now I’m hoping to start AND FINISH a dress I’m making from the Craftsy course Sew Retro Perfect Bombshell Dress.


Gertie from Gertie’s New Blog For Better Sewing is the instructor for the class and I have to say she’s really, really good. I’m finding her instructions extremely easy to follow.

Anyway….. I purchased a fabric for the project as well as boning and other supplies.  Then I found this prize at Walmart for $1 a yard. Okay, cheap, but I just love it!


I mean, check out that hibiscus print!!!!  It’s perfect for a summer dress. Lord knows I live in jeans & t-shirts around the farm. It’s nice to sweeten up now and then.

So the goal here is to finish this summer dress before summer is over. (Yes, I know summer hasn’t even arrived yet, but I need some serious motivation here!)
