First off, what the heck is up with our weather? We have had beautiful weather the last week or so. The snow was all gone, my rhubarb is almost a foot tall, my perennials are all green and happy. Well yesterday we recieved about 2 feet of wet, white stuff. I'm refusing to say the "s" word. I work in a school that is high up on a hill. Well, Friday afternoon the buses couldn't get up the hill so we were stuck with ALL 900 7th and 8th grade students. How fun does that sound on a Friday afternoon?? By 5pm most of the students were gone so teachers were able to leave. This is the view from my front window. Yes, we have a big boat in our driveway. And a big truck to haul it around.
Ok, here is my progress so far on the Burda dress. I am almost done. I just need to finish the other sleeve, bind the neck, add the button loop, and hem it. The sleeves are very puffy. It is going to make me look like a line-backer. The slit is closed with a pin so it is probably crooked in the photos.
This is hard fabric to photograph. It is so shiny you can't see the details.
I didn't even try to match the pattern on the back, maybe I should have. I didn't try on the front either but it seems less jarring.
