I finally finished the second version of this dress! After hanging in my closet for five months, I attached the final button last week.
Eventually I'll get pictures while wearing the dress. Unless I make a long-sleeved top to go with it, I'm not wearing this until Spring.
Even though I took this photo a week ago, the jeans have been complete since the beginning of the month. I just wasn't in a mood to smile here.
After cutting out the pieces for another skirt, I had about 5/8-yards left over. Since the piece was oddly shaped and not quite enough to make another skirt, I decided to make a tote bag.
Fabric & Notions:
- 1/2 yard gray wool suiting
- 1/2 yard cotton floral print
- 1/2 yard cotton flannel
- fusible interfacing
- 1" button
@Kyle: Thanks for the well-wishes. =) EyeCandy was not at the rink on Friday, but he was there on Monday. He's relegated to being eye-candy because he's married. Actually, he's just been demoted to CuteJerk because he's incredibly rude! I was talking with a friend and he rolls up in the middle of us to speak to the guy and shake his hand. I gave him the oh no you didn't look and he rolled away.
@Sheila: You were right. My headache was definitely caused by sinus problems. After speaking with the nurse in my doctor's office, she tried to tell me it was a migraine. I told her that I thought I had a sinus infection because the area around my eye was tender and had been weeping for two days. She insisted that I was suffering from migraines. Not paying any attention to her, I made some pure ginger tea, put a hot compress on my face, and rested. The next day, the infection drained from my sinuses, my eye stopped weeping instantly, and the headache went away. Let this be a lesson in knowing your body!
