I've made some progress on my polyester dress. Having never attempted to match stripes, I am quite pleased with my work. The off part under the armpit is because of the side-boob dart.The pattern pieces for the facings were gone, so I made them myself. At one point I sewed one on backwards, put the other on correctly, the sat down to watch tv while picking out the wrong one. I stood up, looked at it, and realized I picked out the one that was on right. Yeah, girl!
I bought some Butterick patterns on sale at JO-Ann. Omg, I had no idea patterns cost 14-18.95 each! Jeez, who would even pay full price for that? They are all "super easy" and "easy." I could draft them myself, but these were on sale for 1.99.
I like all of these styles. The red blouse up top will be made up first in a light, white cotton. Somehow, I am going to make it button up the back. That should be easy enough.
Andrew has gone to visit his family for a week (aka abandoned me) so I bet I will get a lot of sewing done. Plus, it's the last week of school, so all I need to do is show up! Yay! Free time, how I have missed you.
