A Groovy Pick-Me-Up

Well, it's been a long week and I should have spent my day cleaning but I blew it off and decided to sew instead. It's been a few weeks since I've done any sewing at all. I picked a dress that I've had in mind for a while now.

I purchased some fun fabric from Fabricmart.com and when it arrived, it screamed 60's at me. I was inspired by Eve's version (click on her picture for a close-up) of S3744, a pattern I already had my eye on.

I still have to do a few minor finishing touches but it's virtually finished. And it turned out how I had hoped. Very Brady Bunch! Or as my 20 yr old said, "Uhhhh, that's looks sort of old fashioned." EXACTLY!!

Now, I need somewhere to go!!!!

I LOVE IT!!! Your accent pieces are perfect for your fabric and the fabric is perfect for the dress.

We went out to dinner last night to some rather trendy new place and there were several dresses similar to this style. Who knew Carol Brady was back in style?

It will look great on you - a perfect complement to a martini!
