Work in Progress: Lonsdale Dress!

Hi everyone! Just wanted to say I am sewing these days - the Lonsdale Dress from Sewaholic Patterns, to be exact. I've cut out all the pieces and have sewn the bodice together. It feels so good to be sewing again! 2011 has been a really tough year personally, but I am all focused on happier things now (such as patterns and fabric in my stash just waiting to be tackled!).

Here's my dress preview. Please excuse the not-so-great photo taken with the flash late at night. Also visible is a cute mini dress form pincushion my aunt recently gave me! I love, love, love it!

And, yes, I'm very, very sad not to be able to attend the Sew Weekly extravaganza in NYC at the end of the month. Mena, Meg the Grand, Debi and Oonaballoona all in one day, how cool is that going to be!?!?!

Quel dommage, indeed!


  1. I am glad to see you getting back to sewing - I missed seeing your lovely face pop up in my feed. I am sending you hugs for the year you've had, and another hug for my missing you at the Meet Up!! (I promise it will happen again and we'll all get to hang out eventually!!)

  2. Aw, thanks Meg, you just brightened my day! I appreciate the virtual hugs. I like the idea of another Meet Up opportunity (I've never been to Chicago - hint hint!) ;)


Hey, thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment!
