Well, I have finally finished this dress! Maybe it will be a good sign, and someone (anyone!) will call me about a job. I hate job hunting- it's depressing and no one has called me. I think part of it is that I haven't taken any of the endorsement tests yet, because the next one is on Sept 10 and the last one was on July 9, the day we were driving a moving truck across the country. Until you take one, you aren't considered qualified to teach your subject area. So, I will take the French test, the history test and the LBST I, which is for special ed teaching assistants. But, unless someone miraculously calls me before school starts after Labor Day, it seems I may end up spending some time waitressing and substitute teaching....Wah! But I did that while I was getting my Master's degree and it paid the bills, so.... I am trying to stay positive!
Anyways- here is my pattern.The picture on the right, with the collar.
Time: I made it over several days, maybe 3-4 hours.
Fabric: light grey pinstripe "summer suiting", lining is a pinky skin color, both from Jo-Ann
Notions: one 14 inch zipper
Cost: I am sure I used a coupon, but it all cost less than $20.
Picture were taken on the back staircase because I didn't feel like tottering around the neighborhood in heels.
So, it's good for an interview and hopefully I will get one, so I can wear my lucky white jacket and become employed! Woot woot! Wish me luck, it seems like I need some!
