Green "Springy" dress



Yes, I've sewn another dress! For this one I used the same pattern as the purple ruffle one, except didn't make a ruffle, and made back ties instead of a sash. I like the simplicity of it!

    I've just discovered your website and have read it all through from the beginning. I like it very much; it makes me think of Anne of Green Gables! I'm glad that there are still sweet girls like you in the world who aspire to purity and innocence and take pleasure in serving their family.

    I love your dresses. I have worn only long skirts and dresses for over twenty years now and feel much more chaste and feminine. I don't find that people think it weird; they usually like to see women more gracefully attired.

    Anyway thank you for your lovely blog - I wish you very well in all your activities. God bless!

    I'm glad you found my blog, Damask Rose, and took time to read it! Wow, you read the whole thing? Thanks for taking the time! I have been told before that I was a little like Anne of Green Gables. Sometimes I call myself Anna of Wisteria Pines, the name by which my mom calls our property.

    Glad you like the dresses! I have really enjoyed wearing them these last months.

    Glad you like the color, girls! I saw the fabric in Walmart, and it just looked so cool and refreshing! Plus, I hadn't yet made a green dress! =)

    I have a purity ring. Or a promise ring, whichever you want to call it.

    Ashley, no I don't have a purity ring. I thought it'd be neat, but I've never gotten one. I still have promised to remain pure, even without one though!

    Wow! The dress is so pretty. I am so not talented when it comes to the sewing thing. I wish I did. Oh, I don't have a purity ring, but like you, Anna, I don't need that as a symbol of purity. My heart knows what I want. Plus, my hopechest that my dad made me is my symbol. It means the same thing, or so I think.

    If you were to get a purity ring, Anna, what would you want it to look like?

    wow; another dress. Impressive, Anna! Sewing, to me, takes so much time. You must be quick!

    Another pretty dress! Perfect for summer.
    Ashley, I too have a purity ring. It looks more like an engagement ring than a purity ring, and if people ask, 'aren't you too young to be engaged?' I like to smile and say, 'I'm waiting for a knight in shining armor to replace the ring for a wedding ring' hhe

    I love the knight in shining armor! I have had my purity ring for almost three years now! I'm waiting for my knight in armor!

    I just got my ring last year for my birthday, and like Samantha's, it looks pretty much like an engagement ring.

    Oh, and for Father's Day, I gave my dad a little key, signifying the key to my heart. I had heard of it somewhere, and I thought it was so sweet.

    Ella, you have a hope chest as well? That's cool that your dad made it! My daddy got me one for Christmas 2 years ago, and I'm really enjoying it! It has a cushion on it, so it's my window seat.

    It's cool about all your girls' purity rings. If I got one, a pretty one would be nice! I think I'd prefer one without any words on it, just something pretty. The key thing is a neat idea, Miriam! I think the Mr. Brett Smith was wearing the keys to his daughters hearts around his neck at the Georgia film festival, which I thought was neat!

    Oh - and Jen, I wasn't always this fast. Practice just makes one that way! :-)

    I sound a little silly asking this, but what's a hope chest?

     
  • At 5:16 PM, June 27, 2006, Blogger Ella said…

    A hope chest is a special place where you put the things for your future household. I hardly have anywthing in mine; just a blanket that my Nana made, and a sterling silver brush set. I intend to do some embroidery to put in there.

    they sound nice! i want one now. lol

    Hopechests are fun! Daddy got mine off ebay for about $90 I think. It was a really special gift! You can see a picture of it here: http://danceranna.blogspot.com/2006/02/hope-chest-picture.html

    I have a few things in it... Pillowcases and a dresser scarf I've embroidered, pot holders Miriam Hart made, dolls and books I'm saving for my children, and a few other things!

    That's cool. Your's is still special even though your dad bought it. I plan on putting stuff for my children in there as well.

    What a pretty dress! :) You're a magnificent seamstress!

    hmm... the link didn't work. You can see the picture if you want. It's filed under daily life, then hope chest picture.

    Thanks Alyssa! Thank you for visiting my blog!
