Blah blah blahahaha

Dear Annie,
Busy, busy, blah, blah, blah. SOME people have plenty of time to sew up new and newsworthy projects. OTHER people have plenty of lousy excuses for not doing anything. The table has stuff on it! I have to feed the cat! I can't find the sewing machine! Sheesh. I could lie and say that I'm going to sew up a storm this weekend, but I think we all know that probably won't happen.
Oh, wait - I did finish something! Louise Cutting's Ebb (not Flow), finally got its buttons! I don't have great pictures. Why didn't we put it on Dahlia, Annie? I'll post these for now and add better ones later. The fabric is a beautiful lightweight brown wool with kind of a seersucker texture. It's really comfortable to wear and I made only a few changes - I lengthened the bodice by about an inch and I shortened the overall length and left out the side vents. The buttons are vintage shell that I got at Expo two years ago. I really love this pattern and will probably make it again in something summery.

Well done! Dahlia says she will wear it anytime.
