Yes, a dress. Vogue pattern V8383 in a linen/cotton with embroidered polka dots. Abby calls this my chocolate chip cookie dress because the fabric reminds her, well, of chocloate chip cookies. I have been collectiong and buying vintage patterns and fabric for a while, but this is a modern pattern. It's taken me weeks to finish it – mostly because of the limited time I can devote to anything much lately. I really have been knitting, but they are interminable projects that simply will not end. If I ever finish them, I'll post photos. But now that it's spring, I want to sew some of the vintage stuff I've been piling up. I was very lucky and won some free shoes and a bag from Zappos.com via Twitter. The shoes in the photo are the ones I picked – they're Born's, my favorite shoes.
My grandson had his first birthday and Tom is graduating from Texas State University on May 9th. It's a busy time of year for us. The summer fast approaches and I just now got the beans, squash and leek seeds planted today. Oh, and it's San Jacinto Day, so I had the day off which is how I could get all the gardening and mowing done. Whew! Is anyone else feeling as distracted as I am?
*note: I appear to be leaning in the photo, the camera was on an unlevel surface, but I was losing light so I took it. I also managed to miss a button on the bodice, such was my hurry.
