Default 2004.2

Finished the first a-line sundress and the weekend in brief.

I finished the first a-line sundress (McCall's 2686) on Friday after beating down my fear of eased hems and got two more cut out (white with 1/4" diameter pastel dots and a multicolor wild animal print). Laurel loved the first one so much that she wore it Saturday, Sunday and again this morning -- it's in the wash now since she got sauce on it at lunch -- so I have plenty of incentive to finish the two I have cut out and rummage through the cloth here to make some more later. I still have to cut out the pattern pieces for mine (Simplicity 5010, knee-length variation) so I can iron them them to fusible interfacing, which makes them hold up much better over multiple uses.

The weekend in brief: Collapse )
