Back in December for my birthday my husband took me out for brunch, then let me loose in the fabric shop! I bought two pieces- both are a little different to my usual palate of old fashioned feminine florals. This deep purple and blue floral had stood out to me a few weeks before, and was still on my mind for the birthday trip, so I took that as a sign.
This week I decided it was time to sew it up before summer ended. I went with my classic fit and flare dress pattern- Simplicity 2444. This time I went sleeveless and I lined the bodice with self fabric. Not much else to say about it, except I probably should have taken a smidgeon of length out of the bodice.
I'm on a sewing roll right now- I organized and cleaned out all my sewing things earlier this week, and have a back log of unfinished projects to share with you.
