Okay, I think I really have blogged about this dress enough, but I did it! I bought the pattern and it came today and I'm so excited to start on it. First run in the blue poplin. It's a school dress and won't be worn anywhere else, so I figure that works for the test run. Then I will find some fun fabric to make a Sunday dress. After that maybe one in the long sleeved version. I'm so excited. I'm also excited about the fact that this pattern will s..t..r..e..t..c..h my abilities a little...okay, a lot. I haven't done that with my sewing skills in a while. It should be fun, I hope.
Good for you. I hope to never stretch my dress sewing skills:) Very excited to see how it turns out.ReplyDelete

I've loaded up my Oliver & S shopping cart & then left it as an open tab for a week--several times now. Still no purchases. I keep thinking I need to actually sew an article of clothing that I already have pattern & fabric purchased for & prove to myself that I'm _back in_ before I can justify any more pattern purchases. Because...not quite...ReplyDelete
They are a hefty price for one maybe two different outfits/versions. I've read through the pattern and I'm impressed with how well written they are, something they are well known for, so hopefully it will have been worth it. I'm cutting out the first dress tonight.ReplyDelete
