I was working on Simplicity 2444 all of last night for an event I had to attend today and after a dreadful zip insertion, decided to go to bed at 4am. This morning, I logged on to my Susan Khalje couture class on craftsy to find learn how to do a hand picked zip. 1 hour later, I had the zip inserted, but I still had to do the sleeve and hem. At this point, it was becoming increasingly obvious that I wasn't going to finish the dress on time. So I did what any self respecting person would do...no, not buy a dress, I reached for my mission maxi pattern. 10 minutes later, I had this dress.
protecting my modesty with a white tank..must remember to raise the neckline on the next make.
Paying hommage to Scruffy Badger. Mr.Dibs thinks her name is the coolest ever. Whenever I talk about blogger meet-ups, he goes " will Scruffy be there?" or " Will you see The Badge?"
Maybe this last one is not very Scruffy Badgeresque?
Mr. Dibs made me mow the lawn because I begged him to take pictures of me in my new dress. This has been filed away to be used as a battering chip when he needs a favour.
I'm off to my event.
Enjoy your weekend people.
