Another dress!

I’m on a roll! Even though sewing standing up sucks. My seams are a mess, but I have another dress.

I’ve had this fabric for a few years. The sewing blogger Gertie Hirsch had a line of fabric with JoAnn’s, not sure she does anymore. Anyway, I think this is a rayon cotton combo. It called for a sheath dress, since I only had 2.5 yards. I recently found this pattern. You know what’s funny, while scanning through all of the Quilt market posts on IG, I saw someone had made this dress and was showing it in their booth.

This is all that was left when I finished cutting out the pattern pieces. I admit, I didn’t try my hardest to maximize every inch, but still…. talk about little waste.

No construction images. I will say, the cap sleeves actually constrict my arms a little. I may make this again, without sleeves.

Here I am, trying to get a handle on using the phone as a remote, learning curve!

Getting a back shot is easier, I’m holding the phone in front.

Hey, there is a smile on my face. Also, I’ve been playing a lot with makeup lately, I think I’m getting pretty good at it. Not a painted hussy, but makeup does make a woman look prettier.

Not bad looking for a sixty year old, no peels, or surgery or lifts.

I have a skirt in mind as well. I recently cleared out a lot of items from my closet, so its’ time to refresh with new sewing.
