Polka dots and a Butterick beauty….

Evening all; and how are things going?…I’m all right, just been sewing and living….Coupla’ snags along the way but such is life right?….Before I go and do a couple loads of laundry I thought I should write about my dress real quick like….
I whipped up Butterick Fashion Express 1 Hour Pattern View B a little while ago….While my Babygirl was home visiting I hurried up and had her take some photos…My Sweetest usually takes them and drives me nutty when he does! LOL!…I love him anyway; but my daughter was my first photographer so I asked her to take a few piccies this go’ round….
I have many super cool knit fabrics so I immediately took to my stash and started on my new dress….I used a slinky, knit fabric that I found at Hancock’s Fabrics on one of my many trips there…When I saw that fabric I knew it would become something awesome….that’s what I do when I get fabric….I never have any true intention on any one specific thing, my fabrics just end up being whatever strikes me at the time….I did get my coat fabric specifically for that project; ’cause I don’t usually buy such heavy fabrics unless its denim or something….(see my last post to check out my new coat that is basically too hot to wear here; damn)…..
This pattern was true to what it said, it was very fast and easy and I finished it in about an hour and a half….OMG its super comfortable; like a gown that can be worn outside with my boots!…I know I’ll be making a couple more….I left the pockets off this one because the fabric didn’t seem strong enough for them; like they would have made it sag….the next one may have pockets though if I see fit….View C may be next because it has puff sleeves and I have a fabric in mind already….Well let me share the photos and like always if you want to know more just let me know!

I sew a whole lot, I buy waaaaayyyyy too much fabric, and I have an obsession with books (especially sewing books and magazines), shoes, and fat quarters (and I don't even quilt)...Bags will always hold a special place in my heart; I still make em from time to time.....random fact about me**the pin cushions on the front page were made by my Mama and me....She made the yellow one and I whipped up the red one.....I can ramble all day about sewing and I feel a good ramble coming on sewwwww I'll stop here (pun intended).....Oh! My name is Christy but all my friends call me Chris!
