My sewing machines have been awfully busy lately. Plus, I have new addition to my little collection- a Janome 634D. It helped me finish up a few seams on my latest class samples for my Mad Men Dress class at Modern Domestic!
You’ve got to have a “Joan” dress, that is, unless you’re a “Betty” kind of girl…
Both of these dresses were made using the same pattern. You can alter the original pattern, which is built like the Joan dress, to have wider straps, a more decorative neckline, and a fuller skirt to create the Betty pattern. It is SO MUCH FUN to change patterns so you can have the clothes you want- and it’s really not hard if you know how to apply your measurements.
And in true Betty fashion, here’s the Baked Oatmeal Recipe I mentioned in my last post! Mmm… I’ve got to try this one with fresh peaches- I bet it’d be amazing!
I usually have mine with a bit of milk, but if you’re feeling fancy, créme fraiche would be so good.
