2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

VOGUE 8305 FINISHED...

...Never thought I'd wish for a chilly day, but I so wanted to get some wear from this dress before the real Georgia weather officially arrives.   I finished this last weekend, but I knew I'd burn up in it on a 75 degree day.  This morning's temps were around 42 degrees so I got my chance.

VOGUE 8305

I got classroom pictures again.  The students are by best photographers - or at least they're handy when I need a quick picture.  Today they wanted in on the picture too.



I must say I was very comfortable and really enjoyed wearing this.  I like it a lot, but I'm not quite sure if I'd make it again, but who knows I just might.  I really love ponte roma knits - they are soft and easy to work with.  I got this fabric from Hancocks in early in the Fall.

 

I started my next project last Saturday, but having to work two nights this week cut into my sewing time something serious.   But by the week's end I should have two completed garments. 



Now I'm off to see if I can get the collar on the dress I'm working on now...

  17. I had to laugh when you said you wanted cold weather. Just come to Pittsburgh...plenty of subzero, snowy, frigid weather!!! Nevertheless, your dress fits great! I have that pattern but have not used it yet. Maybe next winter. (The maroon one looked good on the manequin.)
