By the by, I have Sadie’s Jolly Holiday dress all finished and everything, she just surprisingly doesn’t want to try it on for me. I’m working on her, I think I’m wearing her down slowly with promises of Pez…. I’ll have pics up this week, promise! The party is on Saturday, I can’t wait! (ok, and neither can Sadie….)

I made one dress in the great sewing spree of ’11…..and I kinda love my new dress. I was inspired by this dress:
I had some linen in my stash (just enough for the top) and some gold floral cotton I’d gotten at Hobby Lobby in May…so put the two together, with this pattern, and wha-la. A kind-of knock off. It’s really comfortable. Though the top is a little gapey and might be too big for me. I sewed it in a size medium. It was one of the easiest patterns I’ve ever followed, the instructions and pictures were really simple and understandable.
I can’t wait to make this in a top. Maybe in some voile….yes. ok. I’m addicted to voile.
