New Dress


Clearly I do not do well with posed pictures.  This was the best of quite a few, unfortunately!  Self timer shots are just not easy, but I wanted to share my newest dress from the Built By Wendy Simplicity 3835.  This pattern has gotten a lot of use for me here, here & here.  Sadly, this is out of print, but I think it can still be found on etsy and ebay.  It's so easy and comes together fast, plus you can switch it up a bit with a different neckline, pockets, tunic, ties on the sleeves, all in the pattern.  I made it from Amy Butler's Trailing Orchid Corduroy in Blue Velvet.  I really need to figure out how to stand when I pose & what to do with my arms.  If anyone know, please share!

 Oh, and I got my hair cut this morning.  Went in for a trim, came out with a 10" ponytail for Locks for Love.  Did not realize quite how long it had gotten.  I guess that happens when you wear a ponytail every day!

Have a great weekend! -Courtney
