Coming Along Nicely

After a week of strep throat and almost constant thunderstorms I hope this dress will help bring on the promised summer like temps.

It's Simplicity 2926, view D, I added the piping from view A. All I have to do is add the skirt lining, zipper and hem it. I purchased a solid coordinating fabric to make a jacket since it's always freezing at work.

But I tried it on with this jacket I made last year and it works so I may or may not make the jacket this weekend. I think I've worn this jacket maybe twice so it would be nice to get some wear out of it.

I've made a lot of progress on the Vogue shell, maybe just maybe I can finish it this weekend. It will look great with a skirt I made last year.

I use to work from home several days a week now I go into the office most days and it has been a huge sewing motivator, I have somewhere to wear my clothes.

Stay tuned to see what develops.
