I have not done much sewing. I started a dress using Butterick 5259. I only have the belt, loops, and hem left, but it seems huge on me. I might cut the back, remove the zipper, and take in the sizes. Right now it looks like a giant lilac muumuu. Not my style. The belt could make a difference, too. We will see....Other than that, I have been making a bit more progress on my circle shrug. I am working on the sleeves right now. It's coming along nicely so far. Tonight I will try to finish my dress and start a top.
