I love this dress!:
I'm all about easy style and this screams my name. It'll be my first foray back into sewing clothing for myself. When I went through all my stuff while moving into my new sewing room I found a jacket I had started to sew back in 1999. It was the last thing I was working on before I packed everything up when we moved to the country. I've never considered myself a gifted sewist (and still don't!), but when I looked at this jacket, I thought, "Hey, this isn't half bad!" Its horribly wrinkled even though I gave the body a light steaming (its been in a box for 10 years!). Those wrinkles aren't coming out! lol! Here's a photo...it isn't a great photo; my camera's flash wouldn't go off for some reason.
I hate bad photos because it makes the subject look awful, but what the heck. I'm not going to finish the jacket, so who cares if its a bad photo. Oy. In case anyone is wondering, no, my dress form doesn't have a name. I call her "my b**ch". Crude and obnoxious, I know.
I also love these patterns:
I love the femininity of this dress.
And the last one I bought:
I don't know that I love this one. I do really like it, but don't know that I'd wear it because its kind of short. Maybe I can make it shorter, like a tunic, and wear it with capris?? I don't know. I'll have to think about it.
My goal is to make each one of these for Spring. I have to find fabric and hopefully start them at the end of February. For now, I have quilts to finish!
