Time to go fishin'! Alright, so they other day at JoAnn's my mother and I were hanging out with the pattern catalogs when my lovely mother noticed the sales sign said that Butterick patterns were 99 cents each. Oh, Christ on a cracker, it was on. We got 10 (TEN!!) patterns. (1 umbrella, 3 aprons, 1 dog-themed, 1 swimsuit, and 4 dresses if I remember correctly) Then we were roaming the fabrics, looking for stuff to make when I happened on goldfish (GOLDFISH) fabric and it's destiny was clear. I definitely needed an a-line goldfish-themed dress for the new school semester and it was done just in time for being able to see my fiance on our 2.5 year anniversary. And here it is -
Here, it's not hemmed and the straps aren't attached but it's the best full photo of it.
After the straps (regular orange ribbon) are attached, a closer view of the bust.
Completely hemmed with some (unmatching, in my opinion) flipflops, my zebra bag and Hank with his E collar (he just got fixed last week)
And Mommy Dearest decided to photograph me mid-make (She's so proud lol)
And my first ever dart
The back sewn together pre-zipper
This, by the way, is my first ever "from scratch" anything and I'm amazingly proud of it. I have some music note fabric and cherry fabric that I officially know /just/ what they'll be used for. I can't wait to make more of these!! Any comments are SUPER appreciated. (Yes, SUPER.)
Love, Kris. <3
