The "Irby" pattern is my first pattern. It is a delightful dress that can be made in various fabrics, depending on the look you desire. From frothy white or ecru batistes,lawns or voiles to soft florals, or even trendy patterns like chevrons, this dress will be love at first sight!!! This dress may be smocked, if you wish, but looks adorable without the smocking!!
I came from a very creative family: my parents and my sister have influenced in that respect. I learned to sew first, but have also enjoyed needlepoint, cross stitch, calligraphy and ceramics. Currently, I also do hand embroidery, pattern design, smocking and machine embroidery.
With ten grand children, I have had lots of experience to design and experiment for them.
