The finished Casey swap!

Wow, this has been fun. If you remember from last month's post, Casey and I exchanged patterns by mail and decided to sew them up.  Well, we are all done with our projects and here's what we did. First up, Casey's pretty dress. Don't you just love it!  I think it is fabulous. Perfect for summer. I love the little red buttons and the simple design is so elegant. Great job Casey! And here's my little number. I went for a sporty theme, using the two piece pattern she sent me. We both agree, that these patterns make up a comfy outfit, which is a win, win for both of us. Here are a few details on mine. I used linen like fabric. I did make one change, the skirt! I tried making the straight skirt from the pattern, but in the end,  just wanted an A line style.  Also I fiddled with the sleeves a bit, I was so tempted to leave 3/4 sleeves, but went for the short style. I am loving this two piece and plan on wearing it to a causal, picnic, style wedding coming up

A big thank you to Casey, you have been much a sweetie! I am truly thankful for the online sewing community and the richness we all share with each other, you guys are priceless! 

Have a wonderful vintage day!
