Vintage Vogue - V2858 - Original 1944 Design

This is a Vintage Vogue original 1944 design, V2858. It is very comfortable and has beautiful lines.


We've lost another loved one, a dear sweet uncle, one of the kindest men I've ever known. After the graveside service, we gathered with family at another uncle's home. Although funerals are sad, it does provide opportunity to visit with extended family that we rarely see. Here I will share a few pictures of our time with family.

This is our sweet baby with one of our aunts, my mom's brother's wife.

This is our sweet baby with our uncle, my mom's brother. It is at his and his wife above's home that we were gathering.

Our son, Mr.6, the smaller one in the orange shirt on the right, playing football with his cousins.

This is a picture of myself with my sister and brother. I am on the far right.

This is the back of our daughter, Miss 16, walking through the family cemetery.

This is a picture of my brother and his wife and a cousin and his wife.

This is a picture our aunt who is the sister of our sweet uncle who passed away with her children and grandchildren.

This is an old picture of my mom, her siblings and their cousins. My mom is the one on the far left holding the baby. Her sister is on the far right. And their brother is one of the little boys holding a gun on the far right.

This is a group shot where they are trying to recreate the old picture above when they were young.

This is our dear, sweet, beautiful aunt, the wife of our dear uncle who has passed.

This our dear aunt when she was young before she married.

This is a picture of the two on Valentine's when they were courting.

This is their wedding day.

This is the two of them with their first child.

I hope you have enjoyed these pictures and getting a little glimpse into our lives. I especially love old pictures of family. I am still hoping to post some pictures of my grandmother who passed away recently. The hold up is I am waiting for my husband to have time to show me how to make the files smaller so they will load.

Hope you have a wonderful rest of the day!

Until next time,



  1. Trudy...

    First...I am so sorry for your loss.

    The dress is gorgeous..and you look so lovely wearing it!

  2. I am sorry to hear of your uncle's passing. The family photos are precious...it appears that you all are very close.

    Your dress is lovely. I love how it drapes~you are an excellent seamstress! Now I need to go back and read all the newer posts...I didn't realize how backlogged I've gotten!

  3. I'm sorry about your uncle! The funerals are for the living and usually are family reunions in my family too.
    The dress is very nice. Did you make your daughter's dress that she is wearing at the cemetary?

  4. So sorry for your loss.

    Your dress is gorgeous - that colour was made for you!

  5. Oh Trudy - I'm sorry for the loss. So soon... I thoroughly enjoyed all of your family photos. They really capture much joy that is apparent in your family. And your dress is lovely! I've often looked at this pattern. You did such a great job on it and that shade of pink is superb on you.

  6. Sorry for the loss of your uncle. The family photos are great. Your family seem to be in good spirit inspite of the reason for the gathering.

    Your vintage dress is really pretty; you did a great job with the fit and sewing.

  7. Trudy: That dress is absolutely gorgeous and you look beautiful in it. You did a great job.
    I am "itching" to get some sewing done later this week. I've had so much to do to get school going that I've had no time.
    I am sorry to hear of the passing of your uncle. Your aunt truly is a lovely lady and I enjoyed looking at all of your family photos.

  8. I'm so sorry, Trudy, to hear about another death in your family, but what wonderful photos of your family gathering! I loved the one where your mother and her siblings were recreating the poses from a childhood photograph. Thank you for sharing! And your new pink dress is absolutely lovely!

  9. Trudy your sewing always comes out so beautifully. I love that dress!

    Your family looks fun!

  10. Great summery dress. Love the precious family pictures.

    Love that vintage dress!

  12. My condolences to your family on another loss. Thank you for sharing pictures of your family with us. Your vintage style dress is beautiful!

  13. I like the dress you made! And I am sorry your uncle passed away. It must be hard. I also emailed you my address. Have a great rest of the day! Aimee K.

  14. Hugs and prayers. I am sorry about your uncle. Sometimes it seems we get bombarded with sad things all in a short period of time. I, too, love looking at old pictures. Your family just looks like they love each other.

    Pretty dress for such a beautiful woman. :)

  15. Gorgeous dress. What a lovely and loving family!

  16. Trudy...thanks for visiting my blog. I am sorry about your loss.

    I also love to sew, I had an etsy as well as ebay store from which I sold custom made fashions for little girls. Unfortunately between the 5 kids, hubby, garden, blog, house, and farm animals I just couldn't keep up! Now I just sew for us. I love that you use vintage patterns...very, very cool!!! Kim

  17. I am so sorry for your loss! I enjoyed your family photos, though. Like you, I enjoy old family photographs!
    Your dress is lovely!

  18. Thanks for visiting my blog! Your dress is amazing! I love the fabric you chose. It gives it such a sweet, feminine feel. Your family pucs are wonderful. It is so great that y'all are close.

  19. Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed visiting your blog. I love the tips you gave about teaching children how to sew. I'm trying to teach my daughter how to sew. She just turned 10. I taught myself how to sew...I've just learned from trial and error. And from all the lovely blogs, magazines and books I look through. I'm not very good at making garments. I'm still learning. I love the dress you made. It's gorgeous. Maybe someday I'll be able to sew that well.

  20. What fun visiting your blog! I love your dress. It looks lovely on you!

    It was fun to look at all your family pictures. I'm sorry for your loss.

  21. I'm sorry for your loss Trudy. How neat that you use vintage patterns. I have a small collection but haven't made anything from them - they are just so fun to look at. Your dress is such a pretty color too!

  22. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I just lost an uncle about six weeks ago-it's hard when things change. My aunt passed in the early 90's but Uncle Harold patiently waited until he could join her.

    I love your mother and her family recreating the old picture. I especially love the guy who wore a cowboy hat when he was about 5 and is doing so now, too! The loss of your uncle was hard, but it was nice to see family, too. And I'm sure your nieces will be telling their children of sewing with Aunt Trudy when they're older.
