Simplicity 2472: Rural Jardin Woven
Things that I'm behind on include: blogging; sewing projects; quilting projects; cleaning the house; everything work; uploading photos to flickr; downloading photos from my camera. But in between not getting things done, I've managed to complete a couple of quick projects.
Early in the summer, I picked up some lovely French General woven cotton in a large, light blue gingham. It seemed perfect for a summer dress, but ... well, see above. Since the weather has cooled, I've had to adjust my original plan to make the dress more suitable for fall. In the end, I went with a simple shift-type dress with wide, elbow-length sleeves.
