Annie Louise needed a new outfit for April. Looking through the pictures of my ancestors for inspiration, I decided to make a white blouse and a black skirt.
My Grandmother, Grandfather and Uncle are in this picture. My Mother was yet to be born.
I found it hard to sew the little pieces in the blouse, but it came out fine and fits her. The skirt was much easier. The skirt pattern had gathers, but I made pleats because my Grandmother’s skirt was straight.
Annie Louise looks very elegant in her new skirt and blouse. It will be her shopping outfit. She already has a housedress, a white fancy dress for a party and an older dress for cleaning house.
Annie Louise’s quilt is hanging at the quilt show. When I get it back, I’ll take a picture of Annie Louise and her quilt.
Have a great day and happy quilting.
