Newest Dress: Simplicity 2591

Me with the family at bro's grad... fam faces replaced by Eleanor of Aquitaine, Genghis Khan, and Henry David Thoreau

As I mentioned in the post about the dinosaur skirt, I am on a no spender bender for clothes, even from the thrift store (excepting knits, which I do not sew!)

I really wanted a cute new summer dress for several upcoming events including my brother’s graduation. I fell in love with the 2591 dress pattern from Simplicity.

I did make some changes: I wanted a V-neck but not the gathers that pattern comes with. So, I made a new bodice section by taking the underlining pattern and converting the v-neck bodice to a gather-free one. I used a stretchy belt I already had instead of making a new belt. I like my version a lot. It wrinkles way too easily for my taste, but with basically free fabric and a couple hours of time, to get a dress that fits and I like a lot, wrinkles are an acceptable tradeoff!

Gah, it’s June?! Gotta finish May first!

I’ve done April’s Bead Journal quadrilateral. Not sure how I like it, but I’m moving on! May is still in the works. I think I’ll add 2 dots of red somewhere. Photos are still crappy, but at least they are not from the laptop cam this time! Hahaha.
