Here it is, another Friday, and I have *so* many works in progress... and let's not even consider the vast number of *thoughts* in progress! I'm inspired to hop on the garment sewing bandwagon I've seen cropping up everywhere in blogland lately, and adding to the inspiration is the fact that the major pattern companies actually seem to have a few decent patterns out there at the moment. Although my tastes constantly vascillate between going retro and modern, I just had to pick up a few patterns reintroduced from Butterick's line in the 1950s. This one is labeled "Fast & Easy", and it really looks that way - no zippers and just 3 pattern pieces! Plus, the the outer seams are finished with bias trim to make everything even simpler... now this is my kind of pattern!
I picked up this fabric because I thought it was sweet and would go well with the style of dress, and I'm making some bias trim in the bright aqua blue color. I haven't found the perfect buttons yet, but I'm on the lookout. I'm hopeful that I may actually be able to finish most of this over the weekend, but it's always so hard to predict what might crop up in the meantime. More wip Friday folks.
