I've started making a dress (my first). It's a New Look pattern, # 6587, view E. I'm not using any lace, as they do in the example. I cut a 12 (which I had feared would be too small) but now it's turning out to be too big.
I was going to cut off 1.25 inches from each front side, but T. suggested that I simply overlap (since I had already sewn the front band) and do two vertical rows of buttons. I like the idea. I'll need to line it where it overlaps because otherwise the fabric shows through. And, of course, I need to buy more buttons. It would look something like this.
I've had to take a (forced) break from the Nicky Epstein sweater: I broke the needle! So I've started this one: the Thermal by Laura Chau.
Spring is threatening to arrive. The flowers around town are blooming:
