"Another Crazy Thing"

That's what My Sweet Baboo said when I asked him to take the photo of the Simplicity 3775 dress. Not the dress itself, mind you, it's the fabric.... Yeah, kinda wild. I'm not terribly happy with how it looks made up; to me, it just looks like a cheap dress. Something about the way the prints almost match up at the midriff seams; something looks a little wonky. Which may be because that really is a Dreaded Diagonal Print...something I didn't really think about at the time. When I first tried it on, I figured I'd finish it and donate it...this really was a test, after all. But when it was done I decided it might be ok. Anyway, I put it in the closet. If I don't wear it in the next few months, then it'll be a donation. There are slightly more details in The Review, if you're interested.

Now I'm working on the green Neue Mode jacket. I finished a green Bible costume yesterday and have another to make (different shades of green, all, but they work w/grey thread in the serger loopers); I'm squeezing the shell of the jacket in between them. I'll line it after the second one is done.

  1. I like it! I thought it was a shirt/skirt combo at first glance, but after reading, I realize it's a dress. Your hair has really grown out, too, very pretty!
