While I've been packing

I've run across all these little projects that I kept thinking I'd get around to. I guess I should be happy that I have so much time to pack, as this has given me the opportunity to go through all those deep, dark corners in the house - you know the ones I mean, we all have 'em.

One of the things on my list has been this dress from the Burda Style website...don'tcha just love good quality, free downloadable patterns? I'll be back... there are at least two more garments I want to make from here....

As you can JUST see in the background, I'm working an an area filled with boxes , empty shelves and piles of disassembled stuff. It was sanity saving to sit down and put together this little dress. Sorry not to have too many progress photos, but I stayed up late, the light was bad for photo taking, the audiobook was good, and - well- I just kinda got caught up in the process!

Here's me, in a photo taken by youngest, doing my best Twiggy.

Hooray for summer sewing, hooray for summer.

Now back to house cleaning...we show again in the morning and I've got a loooong workday ahead of me to get to that point!

Back to the boxes, the basement, the washcloths...

Happy sewing,

That's an adorable dress! It must be good therapy to have sewing breaks in between all of the upheaval.

Much prettier than Twiggy could ever have been!
