50's Style

























Hey there fellas! How are you all? This is the first dress I made on the dress form that I got at Christmas! My best friend Anna gave me the fabric and it instantly reminded me of a 50's style dress!  So that's what I did. This is one of my favorite dresses ever! I love the pattern and the style. I love to wear it with my white sweater and classic white pumps. The necklace and earrings were also made by me! I feel like this could be another thing that Princess Kate would wear and that makes me happy! 

Have a great day today!

So on my sewing table, I have my machine and my serger! 



I have a nice little stool that is super comfortable!



Ha! You can see the chickens through the window! 


My door!


And my chalkboard! I usually have a bulletin board on the other side but that never made it up here this year!


This is the front left side! That table is my main desk and I have some of my fabric, some ribbons, and just some neat stuff!





This is the view from the front window! Actually, it's kinda the side window but it's kinda the front window too! lol


This is the right side! It holds my foam and paint and some randomness! It also has the best internet in the corner only!! HA





Behind me on the right side, I have my pressing table! I have my little iron and it works great!

So above the door, I have a loft! This holds some doll stuff and excess fabric! It's really nice!
