Simplicity 3624 - Take Two

I made the Simplicity 3624 top a few weeks ago and have worn it several times since. It is so comfortable and I've received some nice compliments on it. I realized when I made the top it would also make a nice dress so I whipped one up last night. In total, the project took 2 1/2 hours. (Maybe 3 hours but I was drinking a martini and although way more fun, I seem to sew more slowly. Ha ha.) Anyhoo, I think I purchased the fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics (not positive) last year. I wore it to church today and will wear it to a graduation open house this afternoon. So comfortable! This will definitely be a dress I wear a lot for just hanging out.

Full review here at PR if you're interested.

On another note, Costco had the most beautiful, delicious raspberries yesterday. I had to make a batch of granola to go with the yogurt and berries.

I like it even better as a dress! It looks great on you. Do you use a coverstitch machine for hemming knits? I've noticed a lot of apparel sewing folks mention using them.

Looks great on you.
I do believe that was from Gorgeous Fabrics, I was wanting it and it sold out before I was able to get it!

That looks great on you! Love the fabric.

I've just realized, in the time I've been sitting around accomplishing...not much...YOU have been to Europe and back, made two bulletin boards, baby robes, a batch of granola, a dress and been shopping. I feel like such an underachiever. LOL!
