Green floral cotton broadcloth from Fabric Mart.
I'm a mess. Boy F took my picture without me knowing. I don't like it but I am busy concentrating!
Then THIS interruption came in the mail! I was so E-X-C-I-T-E-D!!!!
I have been looking for the Simplicity 4003 for some time. E-bay had a lot of 45 patterns with Simplicity 4003 in it. I contacted the seller knowing there was almost no possibility that it was in my size. Guess What!!! It was! So off I was for a Buy-It-Now for $22 with free shipping! What luck did I have!
Of the lot of Patterns I ended up keeping a little more over half. Many were my size and you know how I love retro/vintage patterns. I have listed the 16-1/2 and 18-1/2 sized on my Etsy store to share with my fellow sewers.
Now back to the Simplicity 1797 dress.
I like the trim and the little cap sleeves. I did lengthen it a little more. I like my dresses mid knee or a little lower.

I have already started on the vintage Simplicity 4003 shirt-dress I made a muslin of the top and it fit perfect on my first try! I am pretty good! I have the beautiful brown/tan/olive paisley fabric that I'm going to be using. I hope to get the fabric cut out tonight (since Dear Hubby has gone back to night shift for the next 3 months I don't have to hubby sit him in the evenings!).
Until next time.....
