I didn't get much done in March. Between kids home for spring break and illness, there wasn't a lot of spare time.
I made 4 things out of 4 yards of beige velour: A long sleeved top, from New Look Pattern 6015, loosely based on view B, trying to replicate a top I bought back around 1976. A tank top. No pictures for the A-lined sleeveless dress and jacket, similar to ones I've made previously.
Then I wanted to try this Vogue pattern out of this gold fabric. I didn't love the color, so it was no loss if I hated the dress.
Well, I remade the dress about 412 times, and it finally came out like this (note: you can see most of my office in this picture, which is why Thor sits right outside my office door and NOT inside it.)
Hubby likes the dress; says it's dramatic. I don't know if I like it or not. Ryan said it was weird. To that, Mark responded, "No, it's not. It looks like a cheerleader dress for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers."
Ryan: "Mom's too old to be a cheerleader."
Mark: "The (some team, I forget who, but he was specific) have a cheerleader who's 42 years old. So Mom's not too old and she's certainly pretty enough."
If I had a favorite child, Mark would have earned the distinction that day.
