Even though it's the last one I've finished, I'm going to show you my favorite dress first.
This is another version of Butterick 5315, with fabric that I bought in Bristol last summer. I used the red-polka dot bias tape to finish the neckline and the hem. I love the combination of prints. The vintage buttons (courtesy of the button lady who is at New Jersey Sheep & Wool), also were a great fit.
This dress is easy to wear, and I get compliments on it whenever I wear it. Yay, it's an instant favorite.
This is the A-Line version of Cambie, using some of my favorite batik fabric from Indonesia.
I think I would be happier with this dress if it fit a little better. I think it looks OK, but it's a little tight so it doesn't feel as OK. Maybe someday I'll either lose a little weight or alter it :)
I think I used the pretty edge print well in this dress, showing it off at the hem and the neckline.
And finally here are two Vogue 8764s. I like that they're so simple, but I'm not liking the second one so much since I've seen it photographed.
This first one is white linen, and I enjoyed wearing it this summer.
The second one is a really drapey grey fabric, and it's not doing me any favors right now! But when that's the case, using a kitten to distract is a good solution.
Meet our new baby boy! We adopted him a week ago Saturday, and we named him Oberon.
He is a sweetheart and we think he will be a great addition to the family. Sasha and Philana are not convinced and have spent a lot of time hissing at the scary kitten who is 1/3 their size.
I've found that it is a little bit harder to sew because there is often someone now demanding attention and getting in the way. It's a good thing he's cute!
