Today I wore

Butterick 5638--My DH loves this dress and I do also.  I have a second one ready to sew using a cotton jacquard fabric acquired from a local quilt shop.  I plan to set up the serger and sewing machine for this. And then I am going to attempt the Vogue 1250 dress that so many people have sewn.

I have been hesitant to sew it; not sure why really.  I have read so many different reviews and now have a better idea of how to make some fitting adjustments.  I think I feel like I can make it work.

Later.

  2. You know you have a winner when you pass the "husband test". Sweet dress, cool looking and that purple looks great with your hair.

  3. That "ideal summer dress" is charming on you. I know you will just as well or even better on the second one.
