I love your dress! I just turned 63 and don't want to wear what my daughters are wearing. However, this dress is young but very appropriate for someone my age. Did you design the pattern? It is lovely! I especially like the pink linen dress you designed because pink is my favorite color and I have been told that I look good in pink. Even though I can sew and have for years, it has become more difficult for me because I have just recently been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis. It doesn't stop me, just slows me down. Do you sew for other people? I have my 45 yr high school reunion coming up in Aug. and would love to have that pink dress to wear.

Hi Beejhjoy. Thank you so much for your kind words. I did not design either dress, but used Vogue patterns. My wedding dress was from the same pattern Susan Kalje uses in the Couture Dress Class and I followed all of her instructions and am so pleased with the result. I finished up the pink linen dress and have yet to post the results, but am pleased with how it came out. I would love to sew for other people. Please feel free to contact me at
