What I have been up to

DH is continuing to improve every day.  I actually had a good night's sleep last night.  Having some time before the "patient" gets up has allowed me to do some housecleaning chores which I love to put off but then it gets to a point that I can't.  Thank you to everyone for the well wishes for him.

I even took time yesterday to do some work on the Kay Unger dress by completing a needed FBA. Remember this post.  I decided to use the pivot and slide method to do the adjustment. I added 1.5 inches by distributing 1/2 inch to each front bodice piece.  This required an adjustment to the front bodice midriff also.  I traced that piece and then aligned it to the front bodice pieces that I pinned together.  This allowed me to adjust the midriff piece and have it line up appropriately.

This AM I cut out the lining fabric.  Hopefully I will be able to cut out the dress fabric later today.  Got to go run some errands.

  4. That same dress has been sitting on my cutting table for a couple of weeks now. Not sure when I'll get to it. But, I am a pattern deviant, lol! I can't wait to see your finished results. Maybe now this will get me going on this pattern. What fabric/color are you using?
