Yesterday I went to Hancock's, not my usual one that went out of business, but the other one. I finally succumbed to temptation and bought one of the new easy Hot Patterns. I've managed to resist buying them for what? two years now, but seeing it in person was the push I needed. I found a pretty stretch poly fabric to use too. And it was cheap.
Here's the magazine photo of the Burda linen dress. It has an empire waist, but then nips in again at the natural waist. Hancock's didn't have any linen (except the fake poly/rayon crap -- no linen in it at all -- how can they do that and still call it linen?), but I'm thinking of using the green striped piece.
I've got a lot of work ahead of me with these guys. I need to get dh to start breaking up my beds, so I can these planted soon. I was so glad I hadn't set them out last week when we had a cold snap.
Turns out I didn't volunteer for this weekend's girl scout stuff, so I might have sewing time. I'll probably try to get the granny square bag knocked out before I start something new. I need to make a couple of baby gifts, can't decide what they'll be. I really like the tiny garter stitch baby kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting, but I can't seem to put down my cardigan long enough to do anything else. I really need an FO or two right now.
