My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Modesty! a sewing post

 
Well, it's been a long time since I put up a sewing post!  I have been sewing quite a lot.  But mostly it's either quilting on a giant Mommie Quilt or cutting off and hemming holy kneed jeans.
 
However, I thought I'd share this bit of mending with you in case you run across a similar problem with your girls.
 
My mom made some shirts for my daughter, but this one wasn't exactly modest in the neck line
 
 
 
 
The shirt fits otherwise, is cute and has shorts that match it so I really wanted her to be able to wear it. So here is how I made it a bit more modest.

I took some gathered eyelet lace

 



and hand sewed it in the neckline so that the lace would stick up and fill that deep scoop.
 


Cute huh?
 
Remember, often times there is a simple and quick fix to our wardrobe issues!
have a great day folks.
