Today the site Everybody, Everywhere is having bloggers wear yellow. Here is my look for today using a yellow and gray floral fabric purchased from Joann's. I used Butterick 5211 pattern to make this dress. I made a different version of this dress last year for my Sister-in-Law and then made the same exact dress (fabric included) for myself a few days later. lol.
It is simple, comfortable and work appropriate. The only downfall? Not very "breastfeeding friendly". Since I nurse my daughter during my lunch break, I had to bring pants and a top to switch into, before going to her daycare. lol. That's alright - I think this dress might be worth it...The only changes I made for this one was to lengthen the bodice by four inches, lengthen the overall dress by 3 1/2" to make it go to my knee, and cut the back on the fold like the front. Oh - I also removed the pockets, which is unlike me. I like pockets and am not overly concerned about them adding bulk to my hips, especially since I have narrow hips to begin with. lol.
I should also mention the fact that I cut out the fabric around 11:30 at night on Monday night and then sewed it at 10:30 pm last night. It was an hour project, hour-and-a-half, tops. Can't beat that!
I'm not sure what I'll be working on next, but I do know it should be coming from my stash of patterns and fabric.....I'm officially on a diet for both.
