I love dogwoods! Did you know the are the state flower for Virginia? Springtime here is just beautiful when the dogwoods are in full bloom. I have 3 of them in my yard that my Grandfather planted for me 25 years ago. So when I saw some fabric with dogwoods on it at the thrift store, I knew it had to be mine. There were 3 yards and I paid $1.50 for it! Quite the bargain!
A few weeks ago my niece and I attended an estate sale not far from where I live that advertised sewing stuff! When we got there, she started digging through the closets and we came up with 120 vintage sewing patterns!!! There was no price on any on them so I asked the lady running the sale and she said $15 for all of them!! OH YES!!! I gave Rebecca all but about 7 of them, since she is becoming quite the seamstress.
Here is what I made with my "new" pattern and fabric! Simplicity 7394 from 1976.
