In My Que

Thanks for all your kind comments on my wadder shorts, as you can see I'm over it and moving on.

This is Simplicity 2362, Andrienne made a beautiful dress from the same fabric last year. I just couldn't decide what to do with this fabric until I saw Simplicity 2362. Since this is a sheer fabric I underlined it with broadcloth and lined it with mystery lining fabric. I was afraid it would make the dress heavy but it flows beautifully.

All that's left to do is insert the zipper and hem it. I'm going to repeat my previous blinged out zipper pull with these pretties.

This is the first one I made, I've learned a few things since then so this one will be better.


Initially I was going to wear this to the Macy's Music Festival but I have another function to attend so I'm going to save it. I don't want to risk wearing it and having it snag.
