Ok, maybe you can .. but here is a jungly dress that almost made it to Petty Grievance's Jungle January made from Simplicity 3505.
This pattern has made a guest appearance on this blog before, in shrunken green leopard print cotton.
You'd think a dress that I'd made before would be easy, simple, quick. No, it wasn't! I wanted to incorporate a bit more ease but had added too much and had to fiddle with it and take it in. The rayon fought me all the way and the result was, and is, too floppy to wear without a belt but you know once I put the belt with it I started to like it again.
Now that the days are warm again with no tempests or fires or weird weather - this week at least - summer sewing is back on the agenda.
So many projects jostling in line to be made up, so little time. Oh and I will never ever again try to sew a project at anything other than in my normal plodding meditative fashion. I will sew for enjoyment as espoused by http://soisewedthis.blogspot.ca/2013/01/join-in.html who also came up with the cute new logo on my sidebar. Visit her and join in!
Wild seas coupled with unseasonably cold windy weather last weekend. Here's hoping for some normality!
Happy Sewing, (blogging & photography) wherever you are,
