From Cari's Frocks

Hello again from Cari's Frocks.  My name really is 
Cari Frock 
and I LOVE to sew. 





I spent July prepping the yard and house for a week long crafting event I was hosting. Ladies came to SC from NC, MI and PA. Such a blast! The pic below shows the main event, tho we also did felting, scrapbooking, photography, lots of eating, sightseeing and of course SEWING.
My 16-yr-old niece had 2 prom gowns that we altered to fit. She LOVES to sew and next month we are attending classes together in Detroit.




The gal that did the 3-d canvas instruction brought a shirt that needed attention. I was so excited, cuz I knew I needed an August posting and wasn't sure how I would fit it in this month.


Here's her shirt

and...


there's the problem- gauzey-ness didn't seam well to the cotton knit.

So-


we found this 'fabric' in my Good-Will-by-the-pound stash and the color was a perfect match.


however, we got creative and decided to put the front on the back. We added some trim and


TADA! She loved it!

Til next time...happy stitching!!
