I had a really nice Easter weekend. My roommie and I had friends come over to play board games on Saturday evening, which ended up going on until the wee hours of the night/am.
Knowing how important a Church family is to me, my atheistroommie offered to go with me to Easter service. I do love my roommie. After a great service, we grabbed ingredients for a yummy bone-in rib eye/veggie dinner and then headed to the movies to see "How to Train a Dragon".
With all that activity and fun, I still managed to make another dress FO. I really like how my dress turned out, especially the back detailing. I used Butterick 5456. It is a Fast & Easy pattern, but actually took me parts of the entire weekend to complete. This is mainly because of my lack of experience underlining. Now that I feel more confident in that area, it will help me for my next project (Vogue 1161).
I made a size 10 using fabric from Yardage Town (black knit) and Joann Fabric's (red and black knit). I still have leftover fabric from both, which I might use to make a quick and cute shell top.
Thanks for all of the compliments on my last dress btw. I almost wore it for my Easter dress, but decided on my Burda dress that I made for my friends Florida wedding. To answer the "no zipper" question - yes I am able to squeeze tight garments over my large chest without the need for zippers. Yes I have to do a little maneuvering, but really it's a piece 'o cake. Since I have very narrow hips, I only have to worry about adding zippers if it can't go over my head. This is rarely a real problem. So - yup, no zipper on half of my woven projects as well as any of my knits. lol
