The Vogue dress is done except for some topstitching and the hem. And I hate it. H.A.T.E. It feels uncomfortable and I'm doubting right now that I'll ever wear it, so I'm setting it aside. I'm thinking I'll cut the lower half off and make a separate skirt, because I like the fabric and that part fits fine.
Meanwhile, Sherril quickly enabled me with her fast and fabulous make of See & Sew 5593.
I just got back from Joann's with the pattern and I'm going to make it up for my "little" (14+ hours) road trip this weekend up to Virginia for my sister's graduation from nursing school. (Alex and I are 2-car'ing it up to North Carolina to drop off Tyler's Jeep to him and then grabbing him to go to the party too. Yay for gas prices going down instead of up at the moment. And two visits with the Marine in one month? I'll be in heaven!)
I also managed to do the unthinkable while at Joann's — find knit print fabric that I like. And not one, but TWO pieces. I'm not sure yet which I'll be using for the dress, or maybe even something from the stash, but I'm currently leaning toward the one on the left below which is more orange than shows in this crappy cell phone pic:
Parting Shot: Speaking of the Marine, here's today's cell pic installment, looking very "BA" and Marine-like, don't you think? I wouldn't want to mess with him. ;-)
