I am about to jump into a hot bath to relax before my extra day off thanks to President's Day... so this will be a quick post on my latest dress using Butterick 5674. It is a close-fitting knit dress that I purchased when it came on sale at Joann's. I think it is one of the new Fall patterns by Suzi Chin (Maggy Boutique). Since I didn't line it, I couldn't really follow the directions, but ended up with a nice dress to wear on the cruise none-the-less.
I made a size 16 and left out the lining and zipper. This is a little bit shorter than what I am use to wearing, but that might just be my old timey ways. LOL. I debuted it under a cardigan for a Baptism today and then ran home to change into something longer and warmer. LOL. We will have to see how it fairs on the cruise which is less than a week away now....
So I have at least one more dress that I want to make as well as to catch up on my Minoru jacket. I am one week behind I think. I am hoping to have a sewcation tomorrow if my little girl allows it. LOL. I'm also having a high school friend over for dinner with her husband in the evening. They live in Boston, but were visiting LA and Temecula wine country. I am excited for the visit as it has been years since I have seen my dear, old friend.
