I had to do my usual adjustment but not sooooo much since I have lost a little weight! -2" from my chest, -2" from my waist and -6" from my hips! I don't have a scale so I just go by my sewing measurements.
I am excited to wear this dress next weekend. I did try on a dress while shopping with my daughter last weekend, but once I started looking at the dress, the fabric was sooooo cheap, and the sewing was crap, I just figured I could make something soooo much better! I saved $20 and used a stash fabric, Whoot! Whoot!

The dress looks much better on. I will try to get a picture when I wear it. The pattern was pretty easy except the facing on the top, It was so confusing. I muddled through it and it turned out pretty good. I have 6 yards of green check fabric I was thinking of making into another one (and enough fabric for the skirt!).
Right now on my cutting table is the purple fabric I wanted to use. I have decided to make a sleeveless sheath dress. I've cut the dress and now I'm off the Jo-Ann's to find a lining fabric. I've watched online tutorial on how to add a lining (bagging?) seams pretty easy. Wish me luck!
Until next time.................................
