The Dress Kick Continues…and Christmas in September

I know summer is winding down, but I really want to crank out a few more dresses before it gets chilly.

What I’m working on right now is Butterick 4977. The outer fabric is a sweet find I lucked upon in dusty old Jo-Ann Fabrics near my job. I was just browsing around the store killing time before my next appointment, and I found this gem nestled between some other bolts of fabric. It had no price on it, so the young lady who cut the yardage sold it to me for $2.00/yd. Love it! The lining is China silk from Thai Silks.

Also cut out and ready to go:

And look at what I got last week:

Yes! I’m in the business! I feel like a real seamstress now 😀
