I've had lots of fun playing in this dress! It's comfortable, my favorite color, reasonably trendy, plus the pockets are the perfect size for beer bottles.

I've had this fabric in my stash for years and didn't know what to do with it until I saw Plummy's jumper. I was a little uncertain about wearing a jumper, but it works with long and short sleeve shirts and possibly even with no shirt at all. I'll hold that discovery until it's a little less wintery in Los Angeles.


Since the corduroy has a surprising amount of stretch I made the bodice tight with a center seam and front darts. In the spirit of simplicity I'm able to just pull it over my head and bam, I'm ready for some adventures. There's elastic on the inside of the top so that it will fit snugly without any gaping. The skirt is cut at a slight A-line and gathered at the waist.


There I am climbing around the Getty Villa in Malibu.

more photos and info on my blog!

Best way to get better is to practice! Most of my tricks are things I've figured out through trial and error. Just don't forget the beer bottle sized pockets!

it would totally not be amazing with out the beer bottle pockets!! even if the bottles were empty >.<... lol.. I do want to practice.. the problem is time, i am making money and having fun crocheting, its hard to step back from that and do something that i know i will need alot of practice at, even though i really really want to. I started a little this year, sewing somethings for xmas presents, including two jammie pants for my boyfriend that he SWEARS he loves, he is so sweet, i love him so much Cheesy.. thanks for the encouragement tho, i will definately be sewing soon!! the pressure (internal Cheesy) is building!!!!!
