Sewing Up a Lady

I have been sewing, despite my stupid arm pain, because I committed to sew a costume for Rosie for her high school musical. I haven’t sewn clothes for a long time, pretty much since my kids were small. I’ve never sewn with this type of heavy upholstery material and I’ve never done metal eyelets before, so this was a bit of a challenge. It took me longer than it should have by over a week. Rosie is playing the part of a “lady in waiting” in the musical “Once Upon A Mattress,” so maybe it is appropriate that she had to wait until the day before the first performance for her costume.

Rosie, good luck tomorrow putting the show on for the elementary kids. They are a tough audience. But now I know you’ll look great!



  1. Gorgeous cosutme! You are so cool, Kathy.
    I dare her to wear it to church.

  5. The costume looks beautiful and Mom said the musical was great. “Very professional” was how she put it. Good job to you and Rosie! How’s life with another member of the family at home?
