I love that there is a historical museum across the street from my college. It offers not only the perfect picture and picnic spots, but also takes me back to my childhood and reminds me of the times when we would go on field trips to old farms and plantations decked out in all of our period dress up clothes. Taking a study break to explore the old houses and grounds is always one of my favorite activities, and roaming around the grounds of the old farm houses always makes me think of life back then and imagine what it must have been like to live on a working farm.....
With the fall semester in full swing and all of my responsibilities and assignments, I unfortunately do not find much time to sew during the business of the semester. However, back during the labor day holiday weekend I managed to finish sewing this dress that I brought with me up to school. I had been admiring the "Shabby Apple" style striped dresses and thought I would try my hand at making one with this lovely green striped cotton I had picked up in Branson Missouri last winter. The dress turned out quite nicely and is definitely one of the comfiest dresses I have sewn, as it isn't form fitting and easily lets you breath.
I am curious to see how versatile I can make this dress in my fall wardrobe, as I am already imagining layering it with a collard shirts or throwing a sweater on over it. Truly, the idea and prospect of my fall wardrobe has me near giddy with the possibilities and colors. This past weekend I switched out all of my summer clothes for my fall pieces and I am already in LOVE with the natural rust, yellows, greens, and brown shades that fill my closet....now all I need is some chilly fall weather:)
Do you like visiting old farms or plantations?
What is something you have sewn recently?
Is it fall yet where you are?
