Hello, remember me? I know it's been awhile, life has been crazy but wonderful. About two months ago I was finally offered a new job, after nearly two years of searching. It's not that my last job was horrible; I worked with wonderful people that I already miss seeing everyday. I was just in desperate need of something more challenging. Anyway, the last last two months have been a whirlwind of interviews, gathering files and samples of my design work, putting in a two weeks notice (which, even though I left on good terms, was awkward, to say the least), taking a quick vacay with my husband and pup, then finally beginning my new job (which I love!). I also found time to out a few personal affairs in order, which was desperately needed. Oh yeah, I also completed a few sewing projects.
I completed my Spring Green Dress two months ago when it was, ahem, still spring. This vintage pattern had been on my to-make list for a long time (see the project plan). I absolutely love wearing this dress! I get compliments every time I wear it, and not the typical "like your dress stuff either." Compliments like an 80 year old woman stopping me in the grocery story because "I wanted to tell me how lovely you look in that dress." Seriously, that happened. Without a doubt the best compliment I've ever received. :)
TIME: Hard to tell, since it was made during such a chaotic time in my life. Longer than it should have, that's for sure. COST: $20 (fabric, bias tape) FABRIC: Rayon
