Hi! I am Gina and I blog at Party of Eight Our Story. Together with my husband and 6 kids we are pretty much an instant party. I am very honored to be here! Project Run and Play is such a fun place providing so much inspiration from both the contestants and sew along group. I am at a place in life where there is more" momming" than sewing going on but sewing is something I love. Sewing is a stress reducer (most days...some days not!) and it helps me maintain a little sanity. Thank you Liz and Elizabeth for having me here today!!

The vintage detail is found in the pin tucks.
