A Classy Little Shirtdress

Saw this on Facebook today, shared from a page titled "Repurposed Recycled Reused Reclaimed Restored," 
and just had to share. I'm all for sewing projects like this:

I did a bit of searching on the internet to see what else I could find, and found this great tutorial on how to make a dress like this, plus a few others.

And now 'm linking  this up to Elizabeth's weekly "Needle and thREAD" (note the "READ"), which means I will add what I'm reading to this post.

I'm a little slow... just now occurred to me that "READ" is part of this link-up (I have linked here three times now? I'm old and pregnant--my brain might return in a year or two). I just read Cari Donaldson's "Pope Awesome and Other Stories," the story of her conversion to the Catholic faith. It was a.mazing. And so heartwarming! And hilarious. With the best ending I've ever read in any book. I'm also reading, for history's sake, the Epistle of Barnabas, the Epistles of Ignatius and several other of the "gospel" accounts not included in the canon, as well as many other epistles-- all of these used for teaching in the first century church. The Gospel of the Birth of Mary was fascinating (her biography, supposedly written in the first century) After a long wait, I was finally able to order a list of goodies from (my fave site for cheap, used books).
