Here are some more photos of the dress I just finished! The fabric is Amy Butler and the pattern is Butterick B4443. Its a pretty simple fit. I really love the fullness of the skirt. I think I'm going to wear this a lot!
mmmmm... nothing better than homemade iced coffee on a lovely, summery Sunday! Even Midge was in the spirit for posing!
It felt really good to finally finish this! Now onto more projects... I have a scarf I've been knitting since April. Hopefully I'll finish sometime before the fall! I'm really excited to do some more sewing, though I'd also be happy to knit one of these. So much inspiration from you wonderful bloggers!

I've moved (again) and started up working full time. I must say, I am ridiculously happy to be here, both on the Island and back at my old job. This is a place I missed so much over the winter -- it just feels good to be waking up here again! I've been trying to get a little bit of crafting time in before the craziness of summer and, as you can see from the image, I've been doing a little sewing. Perhaps I'm influenced by my talented roommate, or just the desire for a summery dress for the sunny days ahead. More photos when I am done... because I will be soon!
Hope you are all enjoying the warm weather... what sort of projects does it inspire you to make?
