Starting now I plan to be more active with my Prairie Child blog
and I am keeping my fingers crossed to make it happen...:)

 I am all over the place in the social either as well as sewing for the public. With Christmas right around the corner I am trying to create items for Christmas presents, All who know me, knows that I make 90% of the presents I give....Time is short.

I have recently acquired another dress form so there may be some major changes in my creative style.

 I have  up-cycled for the last two years using everything from old bed sheets to curtains to old tablecloths to get the yardage that is needed to create those unique pieces.

STARTING IN THE NEW YEAR.... I am going to start using some new linen yardage to add to the up-cycled line.
 I want to create a casual feminine line with soft crumpled no iron wear.
they are listed on my Etsy page and you can use the app on the Prairie Child blog to reach it.

 I have been trying to find the time to add new information to my blog...but...time is hard to come I do hope you will be with me as I  break out into NEW IDEAS...

 Here is my idea of a pair of ultra baggy pantaloons. I used a pair of curtains to make a couple different pieces and this is one example. I am wearing the other curtain 

 This sweater and skirt can be worn together or separately. I used 3 different sweaters to create this lovely piece. The skirt was a linen curtain and it is beautiful...this photo does not do it justice. .

 This beautiful linen blouse will fit that pleasantly plump me...I added the little pocket low to be used. It would be great for a teacher or anyone that is constantly looking for somewhere to put that pen or that odd item you don't want to loose.

 I created this very adjustable jumper to fit several sizes. A table runner, vintage lace and a skirt were all stitched together to create this lovely summer jumper. A silk camisole, or a simple sport bra will look great under this piece....Showing a little extra skin is not a bad thing....:)

This VINTAGE blouse is factory made so I don't know exactly how old it is.
 I cut the sleeves, the collar and added loads of vintage doilies, lace,tattered fabric. It is light weight and see through. This lovely blouse and  nice sport bra would look beautiful over a pair of you favorite skinny jeans.

I hope and really will try to be more constant in an eye out for my posts and remember....check my Etsy page to purchase one or more oft these items. Thanks PC
