I've had a trying day, and it was so nice to see another project showcased by the ever-lovely cousin Cathy. Great fun, and I love the dress. She makes all the other people in the street look sort of schlumpy, but I'm sure they were inspired nonetheless.

Wow, this reminds me of Lauren Bacall...I love it! Cathy must be the most well dressed woman in NY! Also, the story is the most creative and entertaining thing ever. I love them every time. I also think she should keep looking, there are lots more fish in the sea. :)

Another lovely frock, accessorized to perfection as ever, and a heart-rending human story to go with it.

I work as an alterations seamstress in a bridal shop and we all gather around the computer to enjoy your stories and your workmanship. Lovely and keep the reviews coming as they brighten our somewhat hectic(May-Oct.) schedule. Plus the stories help put the bridezilla's rants into perspective. Great dress.

I love the wonderful vintage dresses you have sewn. They are wonderful. Great pix. I have a great stash of vintage patterns but have been a little intimidated to start on them because of sizing issues - I am 6 ft tall and size 14 RTW.
