Sewing projects

I’ve been sewing a lot more things lately it seems. It started with making those four dresses for the little girls and then I have gotten a lot of things made since, some knitted, some sewn. But here they are.
Rebecca and I were working on making Ma a purse for her birthday, but it didn’t get done in time because we needed a zipper for it. William took us to Joann’s and I bought zipper, pattern (on sale for $1) and 6 yards of white fabric. I needed the white for the dress, and I use white for many other things so I got some extra for those miscellaneous projects. Sarah wanted a 1940s dress. And it being the first time of making one, and not having a pattern, we went safe and she bought 5 yards of red fabric with white polka dots. I now know hat you do not nearly need five yards. It took three for the dress (though next time I would make the skirt a little longer) and a little extra for the handkerchief for her head. As payment for my work, she gave me the rest of the fabric. Anyway, here are the pictures of all I’ve been doing.
