Meet Rosie:)







Rosie is my helper. She is a great helper.

She loves wearing new clothes.

(a new dress that I made last week from fabric from my stash)

She loves being a model.




(the shirt was made from a man's shirt that I bought at the Goodwill! I just love it! and the skirt was made from some linen that I had in my stash. Don't you just love the rolled flowers!)

She's the best model that I have! She's not bossy or moody. She never complains or gets lazy. She's always right there and ready when I need her! I really need to find a photographer or a real model! But I do love Rosie and she is great at what she does! She's much better than I am! Especially when I have to be the photographer and the model!


(the shirt was made from a long sleeved top that I've had in a box of winter clothes for a while now that I haven't worn in a few years! the skirt was made from some knit that I had in my stash!)

Hello Rosie. I have thought about getting one for a long time and have never done so.

Every serious sewer needs a Rosie! You look but in your new top and skirt!

Hello! Just checked out your blog for the first time (it was mentioned in Sew Many Ways) & have thoroughly enjoyed browsing all that you're into. I LOVE those garden markers & will have to check out your etsy shop next...

You have such imagination w/turning clothing into different pieces of clothing. I'd never think "that men's shirt looks like a skirt for me", but it's so cute!! Can't wait to see what you're up to next!

Stop by & say hi sometime :-)

Waving @ Rosie. How delightful to make your acquaintance.

Waving @ Robyn. (I think you look better than Rosie for modelling)

Robin, you have made me proud! The red top is to die for!! It has always been your best and favorite color but it is so flattering on you! Esp with your hair up ;-)

Love all the pieces!! Good job with self photography too! I never like what I see when I turn the camera around though!!!

I love Rosie and I think after 10 years together it's time I named my dressmakers form too. I think I'll call her Madge!!!! Maybe we can get reaquainted soon, she has been neglected far too long. You have inspired me yet again with all your talent!!!

Love ya,
Mom
