This is Vogue 8615 and the pattern envelope says it's "very easy". It actually was a very easy pattern, but I call it the 2x dress because it's completely lined so everything had to be done twice. Except for the zipper. Once is enough for that job.
I felt like doing a little dance when I pulled out that last pin after hand-sewing the bodice lining to the skirt.
Here are a couple of awful photos of it. Keep in mind, it's late, it's dark and the fabric is navy blue. Not exactly the best situation for good pictures - sorry.
The OnlyChild isn't here to try it on, so I'm debating whether I should mail it to her or wait until she comes home in a couple of weeks. Hmmm...
And, in case you were wondering how Thanksgiving went, it was fabulous! Great company, great food, total turkey overindulgence.
Mr. P does such a nice job with the dinner. The pumpkin cheesecake was a hit, as was the apple pie. Here are a couple of snaps of our table:
Sunflower centrepiece (the last of the sunflowers this year).
Five of us around our tiny table. It was cosy.
I made soup the next day with the turkey carcass:
I know it doesn't look good, but it was really yummy! I plan to post the recipe sometime soon.
Things are humming along here. Busy as usual. I think I'm second-guessing my plan to make a queen-sized bow-tie quilt. I have 108 out of 200-and-something blocks needed. It's not making the rest of the blocks that deters me; rather, I looked around my bedroom and decided it needs something brighter and cheerier than red and grey. I'm going to finish the bow-ties but maybe in a smaller version. And I'm seriously considering making a Swoon quilt for the bedroom. I've loved that pattern since the first time I saw it.
Of course, I'll have to finish up a few other things before I even start that project. Of course...
