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

Well, first off, I DIED laughing at your "Christ on a cracker" comment because I thought I was the only person that said that anymore.

Secondly, I love the name "Hank" for a dog. (May his dingles RIP)  Wink

Thirdly, that dress and fabric ROCK!!!

Good job!  Grin

Lord, show me your ways. Teach me how to follow you.  Guide me in your truth. Teach me. You are God my Savior.  I put my hope in you all day long.

Dang, I thought I made 'Christ on a cracker' up myself lol  Y'all are way too nice for my own good.

And Hank was the first name he responded to after like an hour.  His real name is Henry VIII ^_^
