Walkaway Dress

Butterick 4790

I've been wanting to sew this dress since last year! And, finally...I made my muslin. Now, to look through my stash and find pretty fabric! I planned to be a good steward and use what I have on hand for my projects; only to buy when necessary! ;D

This pattern is simple and quick which means I can make more than one dress using lots of pretty fabrics!

I agree with all my sewing blogger colleagues...that you should ALWAYS sew a muslin first before cutting your pattern from the 'good' fabric!

I will update when I find a fabric...HAPPY SEWING!

Instant Gratification

I've been under the weather a bit.

And, my constant project at the moment is knitted dishcloths.

I wanted to sew something quick! I just got my new biz cards and needed a new card holder!

So, back to bed, I go to rest and knit more dishcloths...satisfied!
