French Housedress--vogue 8813

I made this pattern some time ago and learned from the mistakes I made then. This is a Marcy Tilton design and I like the flowing style of it. It feeds into my fondness for lagenlook. I scored about 6-8 metres of raw silk at a thrift store so I felt I had to use it up. I used huge vintage buttons on the pockets.

With a cashmere sweater and a silk scarf, I'm ready for cooler weather.

Happy All Saints Day!

A worn out were-lab

and an out of steam steampunker, worn out from handing out candy.

I just wanted to let people know that I may not be posting for a while. I am moving! I need to go get busy packing boxes. I don't know where we are moving to (that adds to the excitement!). We are hoping to settle near Invermere for the time being. When I get settled again, I will commence the blog. I must say I enjoyed what may have been my last Halloween in Canal Flats. The kids are respectful and good-natured and work hard on their costumes. We can whip down and see the fireworks at the community centre in under five minutes. I number of deer flitted across the driveway as we returned home. I will so miss it here.
