However, I've decided to go ahead with spring sewing. I refuse to endorse this weather since I'm confident in the fact that spring will come...some day! Originally I was going to sew a quickie and I still will make that garment but I just wasn't feeling it yesterday when I went to pull fabric.
Instead this fabric really called out to me. It is a French Linen blend vintage floral tapestry purchased last month from Emmaonesock. I bought this fabric knowing that I wanted to make another version of Butterick 5147 which is sadly now out of print (OOP).
I love this dress pattern as much as I love my TNT dress pattern. It wears easily, looks professional and sews up well in a lot of different fabrics. I've already made five versions of this dress. This will be the sixth one and I can guarantee that there will be more. Hey, I really like the dress! *LOL*
I've decided that I just want to sew more than I wanted a quickie. A quickie meant that I had to finish it today. Just sewing means that I can meander along and enjoy the process...because it's not like I'm going to be able to wear this dress anytime soon, anyway.
Friday is Good Friday and my office is closed. So I'll work on the coordinating jacket to The Lace Dress, Friday and Saturday. All the pieces are all cut out, it just needs to be sewn together. I can get that accomplished in two days and probably finish up whatever isn't completed on this dress, too.
Those are my plans for today, to just sew...
...as always more later!
