I don't really like patterns. I am a bit dense, and there are too many instructions. So I tend to have a lot of malformed projects, that I make far too big just so I can tweak them and tighten them until they fit. Yeah, I learned I should do that the hard way.

This dress, however, just came out good. And only 1 yard of fabric! Yay! Now I have a whole 'nother yard of this stuff....what to do, what to do.

So...picture time! Please excuse the face, hair, kitchen mess, and general slobbiness.



And it has pockets. I love pockets. So good for holding my tiny lady-pistol, cyanide tablets, and hitlist. Because I happen to be a secret spy. Very secret.
