After making this dress a couple times for my Etsy shop, it seemed right to do a blog post.  It all started with a simple custom order requesting ruffles in the neckline.  From there, I continued to experiment with different fabrics and colors.  I still have lots of ideas for different designs, just a little different than this one.

One of these days I will have to do a tutorial on how to add the ruffles to the sleeves.  It does take a little extra time but it was all very worth it.  The more time to work also means more time to reflect on God’s Word.

There is one verse I have been pondering since the new year.  After learning so many things in 2014 it has such an new meaning to me.

…yet we know that a person is not justified by works of the law but through faith in Jesus Christ, so we also have believed in Christ Jesus, in order to be justified by faith in Christ and not by works of the law, because by works of the law no one will be justified.

Galatians 2:16

Have a splendid week!

Hello!  My name is Cassaundra and welcome to my blog!

With the start of a new year, it seemed to be a perfect time to start my first post and get this blog rolling.   This past year was a great time of learning and improving in many areas of life!  From sharpening the work of my hands to understanding more about God and His Word.

I am really looking forward to sharing what I do on the Tailorette.  As a family, we all enjoy learning and working together.  All my work is made by me, but not without a bit of advice from my Mom and sister (and even the men of our home on some occasions).  Having a good eye from two other perspectives is very helpful.

There have been several late nights spent in the studio creating.  My sewing machine is old, but it’s one of the best I’ve ever used!


After much labor it is so refreshing to see the finished product.

The work was well worth it!

From what I have already learned, I hope to share some tips and tutorials, too.
