Happy first day of Spring!! It is such a beautiful day here! Lovely weather! I’ve got a nice yummy smelling roast sizzling in the oven and I’m working on my research paper for my Medieval England History class. 🙂
Speaking of things that are so beautiful, how many of you are familiar with the magazine Sew Beautiful? You know, Martha Pullen and her sewing empire? Well if you are at all in tune with the sewing world, I’m sure you have heard of this famous sewing magazine. Martha Pullen even has a sewing television show on PBS. She does all kinds of fun things, including her Summer School of Art Fashion in Alabama. My mom and I went to it 3 or 4 different summers when I was little. My little sister Kelsey went with us once too. They have all different classes you can take and learn specialty sewing techniques and there is a super fun Sew Kool for Kids School too! I’m sure they still have it, you should definitely look into going! It is really fun! We even got to go to Martha’s house for a special event each year!
Anyway, back to the magazine. My mom has had several of her own sewing creations featured in it before! In several different issues. A couple years ago, she made outfits for Jill, Kelsey, Evie and I and we all got to model them in a photoshoot for the magazine. Jill’s and Evie’s came out in one issue, and mine came out in a different issue with a whole separate article all about my outfit. This month’s issue, Issue No. 135, 2011 Volume 25, Number 2– features another dress that my mom made! It was Evie’s flower girl dress for Blair’s wedding! When Blair and my Mom took Evie down to get her pictures taken in the dress for the magazine, they said that they had some other outfits that they needed models for and Evie and Georgiana would be perfect! So they both made it in the magazine!
The issue is this Spring’s issue all about inspiring ideas for Easter sewing and it just came out! Here are some photos from the magazine:
Here is the dress my mom made for Evie and Evie modeling it. 🙂
